I've taken several lace classes on Craftsy, and Miriam's is one of the best. Even when she is explaining things that I really know, like the decreases have to add up to the YO's, she says it in a way that gave me a new feel for knitting and designing lace. It's like 'duh' and 'aha' rolled into one.

Very Informative

I watched this course early in my lace knitting experience. By helping me to understand the maths behind lace knitting, It made lace knitting patterns and charts easy to read. It also taught me how to read my knitting.

I know the tools are all here. Very excited. Thank you.

Great Class!

Love this class! I have been knitting for many years and have recently gotten hooked on knitting shawls and lace in general. I have really learned a lot from this class. Thanks Miriam!

Excellent course for a beginner as it helps break down and understand ...
