Nurmilintu Shawl - Lace 101

Ready to try your hand at lace?  This one skein shawl project is a great place to start.  It has sections of garter stitch and lace.  The best part is that the wrong side of lace is just knit stitches, so that makes this a friendly introduction to lace knitting.  

You will learn how to read a lace chart, picot bind off, and how to place a lifeline

Instructor Bio: Gerry has been with the Lamb Shoppe for about 3 years and a knitting instructor for 2 years. Sweater knitting is probably her most favorite knitting activity, but she is well versed in hats, mitts, and shawls. Gerry has spent a lot of time reading and learning about fit, yarn qualities, and gauge. Her strength lies in selecting the right size in patterns and what yarn best fits what you are looking for in your garment. The Novice Sweater class has been well received by patrons of the Lamb Shoppe.
