June 9: Introduction to Estonian knitted lace

Photo above:  Knitting by Anne Reaves.
Pattern:  Queen Silvia Shawl

Following the business meeting on 6/9, Anne Reaves led our program:  Introduction to Estonian knitted lace.  She encouraged the members to try a 16 stitch sampler --  so, do you know what a "Nupp" is?

 Do you see the raised areas inside 3 of the four diamonds?  "Nupp".

 Do you know what to do when you have a yarn over at the end of a row -- and need to purl the next row?   Stumped?   Guess who knows .... Yes, Anne has the answer --  Just ask!

Thanks Anne for the wonderful presentation and sharing your expertise!

  (looks better after blocking).

While we are on the subject of knitting, are you a knitter that throws?   Check out Continental knitting in the video below.   No more throwing yarn!

The July program (following business meeting) is a Lace In.   Please bring anything you have in progress, including the June sampler (Intro to Estonian knitted lace).   Or create a few small lace samples for the cards we hand out at community events. 

Members -- check your e-mail for upcoming program details & guidelines for the Lafayette Lacemakers Lace Challenge.
