Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
I just saw some lace posted on eBay - Item number:220722897920 - listed as Youghal. What do you folks think? What features say "Youghal" to you?
Here's the url:
I don't know enough about Youghal to know if this is. But it is interesting. Virtually all the flower petals in corded bh have 4 hole buds. And all the design parts has that ruffled edging -- I don't know what to call it. Perhaps made of twisted stitches or is it made with knotted bh?
I have just got out my little soft-cover book "Youghal Lace - the craft & the cream" by Pat Earnshaw, and on page46 at the top there is a circular mat with the same sort of ground as this ebay piece.
It certainly looks very different.
