Lacework how to
I'm thinking of writing a lacework tutorial... just because I am completely addicted to lace, but I find that many people are intimidated by it. I'm just wondering what kind of interest there might be for something like this....

Interest so far is unanimous in favor in some form, so I started writing I'm not sure how long it will take but I plan on including an intro, increases, decreases, lifelines, reading charts, some basic stitch patterns (and how to read the charts for them or written versions) and how to add beads. I may even include a bit on designing simple motifs since i'm playing with that now

Oh yes do a tutorial on lace. I have the hardest time on reading the charts. I really do try and it just goes over my head. I have a feeling that it is going to be one of those moments. So please do the tutorial
