Estonian Lace - The Haapsalu Shawl

I first read about this fabulous-looking book over at Northern Lace, an enormously enjoyable blog in its own right, but especially for tips such as this. (You can read the actual post here.)

Bottom line:

Lace stitch dictionary
Gorgeous photography

Do I need to say I've been trying to get my hands on a copy ever since?

The good news: the English translation is finally available!
The bad news: for some reason I haven't been able to get the website to process my payment.

If you feel you'd like to have a copy, you too can try ordering directly from the publisher. The pricing is in Estonian Kroon, which you can convert into your own currency here (it works out to about $55 Cdn., including shipping, as of today.)

Or you can also order it from this very nice shop.

Updated to add: my order went through!! so exciting...
