Very enlightening. What material is made ​​the pattern? Seem rubber, for the flexibility it has.

Hi Rochelle - have just viewed your video and notice that you tend to work 'over the top' of your stitches. I work from the bottom and have found that when doing the twisted brussels I tend to get knots in my thread. Must try your method. Greetings to the NSW Guild from the Tasmanian Lace Guild.

The only time I use a pillow is when I am working the locking stitches in Halas because the tension is so hard there, otherwise I don't use one. I should get my cameraman to take a movie of that so people can see it. He is 12 now, but just as wriggly I predict.

Thanks for making the video, Rochelle! I've never seen someone working needle lace, and it does help a lot.

Fantastic! I was going to ask if the cameraman was a ten year old or your husband. He actually did pretty good.
I see how you work: fold the lace and pattern over your index finger, once the needle is stuck into the right space, use the thumb and forefinger of the needlehand to pull the thread through, once the stitch is in place nail it down with the left hand thumb.

I thought it would be helpful for beginners to see someone working lace, so they can check their hand position. You get a good view of my recipe books and I apologise for the graininess and camera wriggle, it's hard to get an 11 year old boy to stand still for two minutes.
