Thanks so much to Jenny for a fantastic program on the history of Lace. We got a great overview of traditional places for lace, Estonia, the Faroe Isles. So much more history of course, so many different places that have traditions of lace. Look for a full article in the next newsletter care of Jenny of course.
A great selection of laces for us to touch and feel came courtesy of Cynthia. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing knitting! Additionally we had a few other guild members who were kind enough to show off their own lace objects.
Thanks for sharing Anna! You can find more information about this Shipwreck shawl through Anna’s’ Ravelry pages
This is Lisa and her Saroyan, a lace detail goes along the edge of the shawl. Simples but a great way to get a small bite of lace, to try knitting something that you are not used to.
Much of the discussion we had surrounding lace was additional historical knowledge from other members, and also how we saw knitting lace. Some of us had never tried it, and were unsure about attempting it, and some of us have been knitting lace for ages. Here is hoping that we can get a bit more into the hands-on lace in the future. I hope you all enjoyed the program, and check the newsletter for the article. Thanks again Jenny!
Additionally, we are winding down for summer so at the next meeting our new program director will be looking for suggestions for programs at meetings and possibly additional workshops for the summer, please leave your suggestions.
