L.A.C.E. Class on Saturday. We are new members to the group.
The members are friendly and welcome new lace (beginners) makers. Whew, thank goodness - tho, just seeing the examples is such a treat!
The meeting was interesting + we took a break before starting the class. Was able to purchase some second hand bobbins + books. This book is a real treasure, diagrams are wonderful!
The class taught by an accomplished lacemaker. Goodness, she is very knowledgeable and has that special way of demonstrating - she makes it look effortless!!!
I took the pins out when I got home and was
quite happy with what I had accomplished. Noticed the errors, can learn from the mistakes.
such fine thread - and, I learned a couple new
bobbin twists and turns. And, what a needle pin is used for.
It is very rhythmic once you get the hang of
the pattern --- then, things change to make the lace interesting.
After I get my snake finished (realized I wound the bobbins the wrong way - and that was chaos on the little pillow!!!) I hope to get this one back on the lace pillow and get more elements made.
It is a beautiful pattern!
The next class is knitting on a spool - with beads and wire. Me, knitting? I'm a horrible knitter - class does sound interesting!!
