This past week a friend and fellow netter from Brazil sent me some wonderful lace photos.  When I asked her if I could post the photos here, she responded that they were not hers.  Then she included the links.

I looked and saw that the 12 photos she had e-mailed me were only the beginning.  Here are the links she sent me:
When I first started looking at the links, I thought that much of the lace was netting.  Then I noticed, with the help of, some of the sites were about needle lace.  I know the two laces are different in the way that they are made.  What I want to know is how to tell the difference between needle lace and netting when looking at photos or the real items.
