Explore the gentle rhythm and beauty of lace knitting--join us in the New Year for our six week Sunday morning lace knitting program.  The most complex lace patterns come together in fabric that provides warmth and comfort--just what is needed around our shoulders in the cold winter months.  This lace program is perfect for new lace knitters or those who wish to expand their techniques.  Participants will explore a unique lace stitch pattern each week, working the patterns into a lace sampler or separate piece for their resource binder.  In the second half of the course, students will have the opportunity to transfer their skills by knitting the beautiful Swallowtail, a classic triangle shawl by lace designer Evelyn Clark. Go here to browse the 5000 + versions on Ravelry!  Basic knitting skills are required for this workshop and some homework will be needed to complete the lace samplers and triangle shawl.
