Jenny Brandis' Handcrafts

January 2007 lace

January has been an interesting month as I have been mindiing my 5 yr old granddaughter while her mother worked and the schools were shut. I have come to the conclusion that I will need to teach her how to make lace or stop making lace while she is here :)

The researching on gaph paper, their sizes and variations in relation to Lace 2000 has meant that I now have a better understanding of straight versus diagonal sizings. Thank you to everyone who helped me come to this understanding, the results of which can be seen here.

My lace making has been sporatic due to the child minding but I managed to finish off ...
