Thank you for printing honest reviews on,as I had puzzled on whether this would be a good primer on lace knitting for me. After reading many reviews and other knitters opinions,I believe I will purchase lace knitting by Meg Swansen instead.A very experienced,excellent lace knitter with an adeptness at teaching new knitters and those new to lace knitting as well.

I was very disappointed with this video given its cost. If you are a Nervous Nelly as I am about knitting lace, this may not be the best way to be introduced to it. While production values are good and specific stitches are illustrated in the video, it does not give a step-by-step illustration on a given project but instead refers you to written instructions that you must print out and puzzle over. The instructor also goes through the few stitches illustrated very rapidly and it is not always obvious from the swatches used what you're supposed to look for. Unfortunately I came away more intimidated by lace and chart reading than I was before I started! If you knit carrying your yarn in your right hand, you may also find the video not as helpful. Only one style of knitting (yarn carried in left hand) was illustrated, so if you are a right-hand carry person, you are out of luck here. I would suggest you may want to use other resources than this one.
