    I’m not sure how I am supposed to find out about this class, and is it on the web or in person?

      Hi Mary Alice
      All the classes I offer are offered for groups or individuals. I teach mostly in Iceland but occasionally elsewhere in the world. You can catch me in New York in January 2011 and the Faroe Islands in September 2011… just to name something. Please send me an email if you would like to book a class or get more information: knittingiceland@yahoo.com
      Best wishes from Reykjavík,
      Ragga

    I’ve heard of you from adrienne who visited you recently. We have babies around same age here in Brooklyn. Id love to learn lace knitting if you’re in nyc this year or next.
    Best,
    Kirsten
