About This Class

When you have spent hours making a piece of lace, you want it to look its best.  To open out the holes and to show the pattern off the piece is wetted then dried under tension.

The process is the same of knitted lace, crochet or or lace made by any other method.  The demonstration here is for a knitted wrap, but the principles are the same for all lace.

The demo uses a rectangular wrap, and there is a pdf with the process for a square shawl explained and illustrated.  Further classes will look at circles and other shapes.
