A fresh, modern take on classic lace knitting! When it comes to stunning lace knitting, there are few names more synymous with the craft than Romi Hill. Her designs have made by thousands of knitters and her latest creations in New Lace Knitting will have you racing for your needles and skeins of yarn to cast on beautiful, artful, sophisticated pieces. These 19 garment and accessory designs will reawaken your love of traditional lace knitting by using classic stitch patterns in fresh ways--whether you're creating shawls, cardigans, pullovers, or wraps. Through these pieces, you'll be treated to the incredible versatility of lace: how stitch patterns change in different weights of yarn, how you can use that stitch pattern sparingly or for your whole project, and how little knitterly details make a lace project truly elegant, whether it is for every day or special occasion. You may be familiar with knitting lace, but this is New Lace Knitting!
Rosemary (Romi) Hill always loved being crafty, but never imagined she could be lucky enough to do it for a living! Although she had knit on and off throughout most of my life, it was learning to knit lace in 2005 that kindled her true passion for fiber and needles! Romi's work has appeared in numerous publications, among them Knitty, Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Twist Collective, and in several books. A library of her designs can be seen at ravelry. com/designers/rosemary-romi-hill. She is also the author of Elements of Style: Knit & Crochet Jewelry with Wire, Fiber, Felt & Beads (Interweave 2008)
