I purchased 2 books with my Barnes & Noble gift card. I'm not a lace knitter but I just may be after perusing the first book, Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby. The photos are gorgeous and the patterns appear to be well written and for various skill levels.
The second book is Yarnplay by Lisa Shobhana Mason. I purchased this book because of the cover sweater. The V-Neck pullover is called Poppy.
Tomorrow I will be leaving for Nantucket to check on the progress of our house remodel. The Dale's of Nor(th America) KAL starts January 20th. I won't get home until the afternoon of the 22nd so I'll miss the 'official' cast-on date. For those of you participating in the KAL have fun and I'll catch up with you when I get back.
