Another Knitted Lace of Estonia Fan!

I just bought the only copy of Nancy Bush’s Knitted Lace of Estonia based on Grumperina‘s enthusiastic post about it. I love it! As with other Interweave Books, it gives the reader more than a collection of patterns. It includes explanation as to the history and how Estonia knitters create their shawls including diagrams to understand the basics of how to put them together. In addition, there is a stitch dictionary of Estonia lace stitches complete with explanations at the back.

I have started the Raha Scarf. It’s a short piece of work focused on one major lace pattern. I am using the blue alpaca fingering weight leftover from the Cross Your Heart Sweater which is just enough for this delicate lace. I plan to give it to a special someone.

As you can see, I’m knitting on straight needles since my other size 4 needles are in use!
