Not the kind involving 500 stitches escaping off a circular needle.
I love lace knitting. But once in a while I run my head painfully hard into the brick wall of how undervalued this particular lacemaking technique is.
Yesterday was one of those days.
I stopped at the Blue Star Antique Pavilion and browsed around until I found these three doilies: Both of these patterns are in Knitted Lace 2 (Kunst-Stricken II).
The two white ones are the cover doily of the first section of the book.
The second one is a very pretty doily called "Anemone", on page 25 (page 17 in the original).
I paid 88 cents each for the white ones. $1.88 for the colored one.
