"I wasn't sure I could knit a sweater, let alone a sweater with a lace design and pockets. Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark knits along with you and takes you step-by-step through the entire project. I had never knit from a chart before, never used double pointed needles. Mercedes showed me how and I did it!"
