Lace stitch pattern book?

anyone know of a good lace stitch pattern book or website? I’m really frustrated with the thing I’m knitting right now and am thinking if I use a different lace pattern maybe it would help me not be so mindless when I am knitting. Because THATS where all my problems are stemming from.

I was thinking of celtic lace in particular.

Barbara Walker has some wonderful lace pattern books. I’m sure there are some Celtic ones in there.

Meg Swansen’s A Gathering of Lace is also supposed to be quite excellent, though it is more patterns than a stitch book, per se.


Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls by Martha Waterman. It focuses on lace stitch patterns, and the different ways/how to’s in constructing shawls.
