When I think of crochet, my mind immediately goes to lace. I am not sure if it because I watched my aunt craft a crochet lace tablecloth, or because of the crochet doilies that I have inherited from my female ancestors... but to me crochet and lace go hand in hand. I have only started learning how to crochet, but I love reading through crochet lace books. These books of delicate patterns inspire me to work harder to learn this craft. You should check them out!
