Holly, You wondered about how to know the order of work.  When I had this question, I was advised to go as far as you can in any section, then pick up a new section.  This simple guidance really helped.

where can we find it to buy it?

I do have her first Schwartzeit book. There are 3 "beginner" patterns, but even those are difficult. I greatly admire her work in diagramming these complex laces.

Par contre, je n'ai jamais eu la chance de me procurer le 1er tome

This was posted on facebook today. A 2nd volume of her Chantilly laces.

This book notice appeared on facebook today. It appears that it may be mostly point ground laces. Two of them look similar to patterns in another book. I haven't seen this, but the blurb does suggest it has patterns.

Hi Holly,  My children bought me a book for Christmas, which might be a big help to you.  It is The Grammar of Point Ground by Ulrike Voelcker.  It isn't really a how to book but a technique book, which I guess is a how to book.  It is a small beautifully bound book, which remains open to the page you are viewing.  The descriptions are in German and well translated into English.  The diagrams and photos are excellent.  It starts simple and works up to more involved techniques.  There are a few projects in the back to practice various techniques.

In general the working order would be similar to that used in torchon. Prepare all the ground above a cloth stitch or half stitch area, as far as you can go. Then work the motif. Then the ground below the motif, etc.

Holly, keep in mind that the diagram is your friend when analyzing the order of work. Try enlarging it, and, without even looking at your pillow and threads, take a set of colored pens, pencils, or highlighters. Beginning with where you hang on the pairs, color the first stitch (I'm not talking about the standard color code here; you're looking to color each section as far as you can work without pulling from another section. Use any colors to distinguish.) Look for where those pairs go next, and color the next stitch(es) the same color, as long as they're within the same section (that is, not entering or leaving a motif or other element). Continue until you need a pair added or pulled from another section that's not yet colored. Find the next section that's now ready to work, and switch colors, and repeat, coloring each stitch until you need to pull from an unworked section. 

Are you still working from Visual Introduction? If you let me know which pattern, I can show an example of what I mean.
