Welcome to Lace Mastery Knitting Study Guide!
The first four week focus on becoming either acquainted with lace if you are just starting, or challenging ourselves for knitters experienced in lace knitting. The final four weeks focus on designing our own lace shawl, working through the Design Your Own Triangular Shawl course taught by Tabetha Hedrick.
Everyone is welcome to join us for the first four-week section (track A), the last four-week designing section (track B), or the whole study guide! We’re happy you are here!
Follow the Study guidance week by week, with all of the discussion taking place over in the SOS forum group! For sharing your projects on social media, tag #sosknitting and #schoolofsweetgeorgia!
