The next booklet in Kathleen Valentine's Knit Your Tail Off series is Part 3, Learn-To-Lace Marketing Bags. If you are a knitter who longs to try making lace but is nervous about where to begin this is the perfect books for you. These simple bags (5 marketing bags and 1 beach bag) are knit from easy to work with rayon (but you are welcome to substitute acrylic, jute, or any sturdy yarn) and lead you step by step through the simplest of lace patterns through progressively more skillful patterns until you successfully learn-to-lace. Because you are just making marketing bags, if you make a mistake, no one will care. This volume will be available for cool summer on-the-porch knitting.
