"I love Romi's delightful personality as she shares her experience and knowledge on knitting lace. There are a lot of tips that I am taking away from these videos as an experienced lace knitter. It is wonderful to be able to watch the new-to-me techniques over and over again to get them right! A fantastic class with a gorgeous shawl!!!"
