Links for your lace

Thank you all for joining, looks like we may get up to 90 people - it's been very exciting for us.

I have about 10 people or so to add to the sidebar today, but after close-off you should all be up there - please let me know if you're not and I'll fix it up straightaway.

Now, I know a few of you are pretty new to lace. So, to help you I've compiled a list (by no means exhaustive) of places on the net where you can buy yarn, patterns, get free patterns, enjoy ogling the fine work of others or even learn about what this lace caper is all about.

WARNING!! These links are delicious and possibly addictive. No responsibility taken.
