A few years ago, I didn’t know how much I would enjoy knitting lace. It’s not so much I had a fear of charts, but I was in open rebellion against them. But then Mim of Mimknits.com started designing some beautiful, chart only patterns. If I wanted to knit those I would have to learn charts. (It didn’t help that I often saw the real life shawls in person, when she lived still in my small Mountain Valley) She was and continues to be an inspiration. I love her patterns
So, I sat down and learned to read, understand and knit charts. Lace caught hold of my heart and I haven’t turned back. This month, I have the chance to teach others, what Mim shared with me. The open window of great opportunity. Learning to read, understand and knit charts.
This is the stole pattern that I will be teaching in the class, but I wanted to offer it for those who will not be able to attend. Enjoy
