Let’s be honest, lacework can be tricky – it’s often difficult to get to grips with all those yarnovers, complex lace charts, strange lifelines and lace blocking. Thankfully, Arnall-Culliford Knitwear are passionate about helping knitters learn new skills and techniques. Lace beginners should check out their new book, ‘Something New to Learn About Lace’, which contains colour photo tutorials, hints and tips and some gorgeous projects to sink your needles into. Five lucky readers will win a copy each, worth £14. To see more technique books go to www.acknitwear.co.uk.
