Lace Room

Lace weight yarns are some of the most intriguing, challenging, and deeply fulfilling yarns I work with. Lace "demands" patience, consistent and persistent handling, along with concentrated effort to follow stitch patterns with absolute accuracy. One is in complete flow and in the zone when I work up lace patterns. This page is dedicated completely to lace and lace works.

I thought I would go back in time and post all the lace projects I have (and I might in the future), however, for now, I will add those that I make from now on.

My exploration and crafts takes me to Estonian Lace - Haapsalu, Orenburg Lace, Shetland and so much more. Stay Tuned!
