This is the best afghan book I have ever found and I've been knitting for 53 years. At the moment I'm making a crib blanket for my great grand child. Fun, easy and fast.
Four new babies were born into my family during the past year, and I wanted to make something other than the usual sweater, bonnet and bootee sets. The cover photo of this book attracted my attention, and I have not been disappointed in any way. The paper used is of a good quality, and the photographs of each project are really lovely. Instructions are thorough, and materials required are noted. The book arrived when I expected it to - Overstock is always great in that respect.
This is a must-have book for anybody who is learning to tat or wants to tat. It has easy-to-understand instructions on many different tatting techniques and simple diagrammatic patterns. It also has a great section on the history of tatting. While I love this book, it was shipped to me in a flimsy envelope. The paperback book suffered damage during the shipping process. When I opened the envelope, I was disappointed to see that the book was bent quite severely along the spine in several different places. As a result, the book didn't look new at all. It might have been a used copy, for all I know. I will not be purchasing any paperback books from Overstock ever again. I should have bought this book from a specialty lace shop because I know they would have done a better job with the shipping. Don't be a sucker like me and fall for Overstock's free shipping.
Purchased this as a gift for a friend and they absolutely loved it .. said instructions were easy to follow .. not necessarily the greatest book for a beginner but they loved the challenge...
