New modern lace knitting
Workshop description: Learning how to read lace charts and practicing the skills of lace knitting. Discovering the history and culture surrounding traditional Estonian Haapsalu lace shawls/ Shetland lace shawls. Explore how lace is made. Consider how the traditional craft of lace knitting is being made modern.
Knit a variety of lace stitches.
You’ll be given a handout with photographs, charts and written instructions for each stitch. Practice makes perfect, so a bit of practice in class will help too before starting the pattern.
Finishing and blocking a big lace shawl/scarf is always one of the most important things about knitting. In this modern and dynamic world, I hope that you might take a few moments to savor your lace stitches…
