The Hole Truth - Basics of Lace
3 hours. Saturday, October 1 - 2:00pm - 5:00pm, $50
you are intrigued by lace, but fear the complexity, this is the class
for you. Lace looks complex (and can be) but some of the most beautiful
patterns are actually quite simple. We will start at the beginning
covering the terms yarn over and yarn around needle, explaining the
different types of decreases and working through the basics. We will
also provide an overview of lace charts and tips for dealing with more
complex patterns. Open up a "hole" new world of knitting for yourself to
enjoy and enter the world of lace.
