Ann's step-by-step illustrated tutorials and friendly text make mastering lace knitting skills simple, satisfying and fun. For speedy results the pattern collection includes some basic items that make ideal first lace projects.

Follow Your Arrow dried a bit quicker than I thought it would. So fast that I didn't get the points pinned out. It will come home for the weekend and I'll re-Soak it. The big problem is that my blocking wires and pins are packed somewhere. I'll be scrounging through the basement tonight.
