Harp Playing Technique

Quick, silly question, but I can't seem to find the answer - even watching youtube videos of players isn't helping, since the camera doesn't focus on their faces!

If you were a very accomplished harper, who had been playing for ten or fifteen years, could you play without looking at the strings? Or is that a requirement? I don't know if it's relevant, but the harp in question is a small Celtic style harp, not a floor or pedal harp.

Edit: Thanks for all the responses! That's pretty much comprehensively answered my question. :)
