Lace is all the rage these days. If you don’t believe me, troll the post-Sock Summit Ravelry boards – other than socks, the most talked-about knitted garments were the lace. I personally saw a quadrillion or so lovely lace shawls, ranging from the simple to the complex. In fact, I knitted a Prairie House Shawl (another post topic, for sure, because I am in LOVE) for the Sock Summit.
So, if you want to work on your mad lace skillz, we have a class this coming weekend that is just the ticket!
