Well, yes! But lace is really not so difficult to do. I watchen a very great class on that from Eunny Lang: "Lace knitting - Basics and Beyong" She explains everything so well. If you would get into it, you could even design your own lace! Laura Nelkins class was the first - she guided us through the pattern very good. From the other class I plan to do the "Ocean Shawl". I have never thought, I could accomplish lace - and then I did!
