This is being a slow read. The description of each lace behavior tends to be repetitive because each one follows a formula. The information is good and will be useful.

I bought the book for the lace patterns and thought it might be informative which it is. It is going to be a good reference resource on why knitting behaves the way it does besides having a number of interesting lace patterns.
The photography is clear as are the charts. The patterns are varied. This is a book I would welcome on my bookshelf. I agree with another reviewer that it needs more than 5 stars.
