Shetland Knitter's Notebook arrived.
Oh, well. Even though that was disappointing, the lace shawls in SKN are just incredible and I had no idea how big some of them were.
One of my majors in college was costume design , but Victorian England was not one of my specialty periods. I never really paid attention to the lesser known areas of that period like shawls, undergarments, etc. except for the hated corset and petticoats. So I learned something anyway and I'm glad I got the book. I may even try to duplicate the pattern just on my own.
