Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
Hi, fellow lacers!
First post here. Greetings from the Crescent City! I'm primarily a tatter, but I've dabbled in some needle lace before.
I'm especially interested in oya/bebilla and the "floral" knotted lace styles, and I have a few questions.
On YouTube, I've seen videos of some lacers stitching a single knot, others a double one. Are the styles particular to a certain country? I'm also following along with the Figen Cakir book, and she does a double knot.
I'm also one of The Few, The Proud, the Left Handers. Is there anything in particular I should/shouldn't be doing other than a mirror image of what a right hander would do, or does handedness (is that a word?) maka a difference?
Hollie (as in Point, but that's a different group).
I had a look last night—simply beautiful!
