Learning to knit lace

We notice a lot of customers love the look of lace. And many just want to plunge straight into it on their first knitting attempt.

It puts a damper and to some, a major setback when mistakes that occur aren't as easily fixed. Hence, we often advise that lacework is only introduced when you are very comfortable with reading basic stitches and understand how the pattern stitches are formed.

Sometimes the road to completion can be arduous and tiring. But eventually we all get there.

Sorry the photo isn't as sharp as I would have liked it to be.
Here's the FO by one of our ex-customers, Francisca -- you can see her starting her first project here. In fact, she came by sometime last year to purchase some yarns to knit up a scarf for her good friend.

For those of you curious how this project looks like, I managed to locate a WIP photo. This is a more accurate representation of the actual yarn and the patten for the cropped mini cardigan.

You really have to see the actual garment -- it just evokes an air of classic vintage ala Audrey Hepburn's garden tea party dress style!
