So far I have 3 different lace shawls on needles while being almost done with one of them. I’m very pleased to have finished knitting and blocking 2 lace shawls in 2014 for the fiber festival season. My new blocking boards are wonderful. One of the lace shawls is a “Shetland Lace Shawl” made with Habu yarn and is my long term (1+ year project). The other 2 are from the great book “New Vintage Lace” although I strongly recommend researching the erratas before beginning a project.
Since I have 2 finished shawls I am happily pursuing the art of Bobbin Lace making. My first local guild meeting was very inspiring and encouraging. I foresee making trims for pillows and long term project of a table runner. Maltese Lace is my goal as it is elegant and intricate. For the moment of course I’m just learning the techniques while making bookmarks – we all need to start at the beginning and with small projects. Enjoy the photos of my journey – till next time!
