I still love Irish Lace it is crochet in the most magnificent form. I have to admit that “real” lace is made crocheting over a foundation and it is a long process, but they have a more modern type.
It takes time to produce a master piece but it is worth it. I have yet to make a project, I have good intentions but it takes a lot of practice and know how, but I would love to attempt it soon. The thread that is used today yis thicker so the project looks a little bigger but the beauty is still there.
