I have always admired the Estonian lace shawls and now I can make my very own with Nancy's guidance. I like the organized way to work an example. Nancy's voice is clear and companionable. Detail instructions are good also, e.g. for making the characteristic bobble/button or nupp (nupud, plural). I am pleased with this purchase.
