I have here a review copy of the newly published Noro Lace: 30 Exquisite Knits.
As the title suggests, the book contains 30 patterns from a variety of designers. You can see all the designs on Ravelry, here. All the designs are made with Noro yarns, of course, and there are patterns include ones for hats, cowls, blankets, shawlettes, sweaters, gloves and accessories. A few of my favorites:
Loop Mesh Scarf, designed by Amanda Blair Brown, is knit from Noro Silk Garden Sock. This pattern is very intriguing!
The Tilted Blocks Scarf, designed by Cheryl Murray, is made from Noro Taiyo Aran – looks like it would knit up quickly and make a fabulous gift.
The Cropped Cardi by Anna Davis is knit in Noro Silk Garden. The pattern is fairly easy, with simple lace and bobbles. I’d love this over a plain black dress.
And the very cute Leaf Band Hat by Cheryl Murray is also knit in Noro Silk Garden. I love slouchy hats!
All of the patterns take good advantage of the striking Noro colorways and striping sequences. The book itself is hardcover and beautifully photographed. The patterns look well-written and clear. some of the lace patterns are charted, and some are written out.

Meanwhile, I have finished my Chloe sweater.
And Loki is in a contemplative mood.
