A lifelong student of knitted lace, designer and spinner Margaret Stove shares her personal knitting journey of learning to create lace from scratch. Her spectacular designs are truly the pinnacle of the craft, and Wrapped in Lace follows Margaret as she works on the legendary "wedding ring shawl," a large, knitted lace shawl so fine and delicate that it can be drawn through a wedding ring. Accompanying Margaret's story are in-depth descriptions of each set of lace techniques, patterns, and lace knitting traditions, and offers original patterns for lace shawls, stoles, and scarves. Embark on your own journey in knitted lace as you travel around the world in 12 gorgeous projects highlight knitted lace characteristics from the Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, Orenburg, Estonia, and lace motifs of New Zealand, as well as more contemporary European work. An expert on lace repair and conservation, Margaret also teaches you how to preserve and repair your knitted lace, and how to even remake heirloom pieces.
