Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
What I learned with my first piece of lace
Most importantly? I learned that I can't wait to start my next piece and already have the next ten or so projects started in my head. I come to needle lace by way of crochet and randomly browsing youtube late one night. I thought it looked fascinating and definitely something that was right up my alley. I have been obsessing over what I call 'antique techniques' and have been really enjoying looking into the process for all of these things. The obsession started when I saw a woman advertising for wool spinning lessons and I thought that would just be the niftiest thing to learn to compliment my crochet obsession. And here I am =P
I decided to follow Michael Dennis's video tutorial as a starting point. There were other types of lace i was more interested in but his looked like the best sampler to get me started on the whole process, and his videos were the most in depth in terms of step by step instruction. Also they were in English and I was running into the problem where I was finding lace techniques that I wanted to try with instructional videos only in other languages. So Dennis won! lol.
I am open to any critiques. Love to get all the help I can!
