Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

Am in the process of trying to figure out how to develop and market several lace knitting designs that fall into five categories. I will need lots of test knitters in order to try the designs in different yarns. If you can keep them a secret, I will email you a link to my flickr album where you can see almost all of the “virtual” designs, that is, the items are photos that have been manipulated in Photoshop to look like either a dress, sweater or top (and later, shawls). If interested in participating in the private test knitting, or just commenting on the designs, email me at “doilyhead@yahoo.com”.

Doily In Above Photo Knitted By Glenda Hunt

The rounds in the photo on which the colors are changed are Rounds 34 and 97; the crochet chain edge can also be done in a different color. I will also put the color change rounds in an update of the pattern sometime next week.

Also note that the center is textured instead of plain stockinette. However, the increases and decreases that form the texture cause the knitting to be somewhat tedious and slow going, but IMHO, it’s well worth it.

Round Doily In Knitted Lace By Herbert Niebling

Dahlie - Elsa 3301Knitted By Franciska Ruessink

The pattern is 81 rounds; and my test knitter is very fast, so you’ll have to take your chances in terms of finishing before the big day… I’ll spare you the details of why I did not publish Dahlie sooner, except to say I’m knitting another slightly larger doily myself, and thought I’d be finished by now… but when I do finish, I’ll explain why it took longer than I thought it would.

Note that Niebling used the name "Dahlie" at least three times! The instructions for this doily were published in 1952; a completely different pattern appears in Burda Special E 903. The third pattern will be revealed with the photos of the adaptation that I made from it… (tease… tease… Remind me to put a link to the photos here when I place the photos on their own page).

Happy Knitting!

Folks,

Am still very much backlogged, but managed to squeeze this project in (among two others). Osnat did a wonderful job knitting it as a shawl, the yarn amount was 1456 yds (1337 meters), but I forgot to ask for the needle size, so that will come later.

Continued Happy Knitting!

Folks,

Would really love to see one of these hats done in bison or qiviut (since they require so little yarn).

Below are links to the pattern page, and to two websites for yarn:

Lace Diamond Sampler Hats

Bison and Silk yarns at thebuffalowollco.com

Qiviut Yarns at Windy Valley Musk Ox

Looking forward to seeing something in one of these yarns, plus beads!

Glenda

Folks,

Although it might already feel like winter, there’s still time to get in a few more holiday gifts. Myself, am stuck on a project (or two), and don’t want to hold anyone up until I’m done.

So here’s a chance to get what you didn’t get during my last sale. I think I’ll be doing these sales semi-annually.

Happy Knitting!

Glenda

Hi All,

Am “stuck” on a project that am hoping to be sending to test knitters very soon.

Meanwhile, thought I’d mention two things:

1) Franciska mentioned a couple of times that, instead of double pointed needles, she uses three 16″ circular knitting needles, casting onto the first two and knitting with the third.

2) Although I read the following in Mary Thomas’ Book of Knitting Patterns many years ago, I somehow forgot to include it in the instructions for crocheting off: Instead of using a crochet hook, knit together the stitches that are supposed to be gathered into a single or double crochet; then *yarn over, pass previous stitch over yarn over, repeat from * for the number of crochet chains indicated.

Hoping the above encourages some of you who were a little uncertain about what to do instead.

Glenda

These two very similar designs were also test knitted years ago. Again, I got distracted until now (due to pending vet bill). For more purchase info (price is USD 7.50), Click Here.

Gisela knitted this doily way back in 2003! There is a complete tablecloth in one of the Anna magazines, but I do not have it, so for now, this is the best I can do (quickly) for contributions to a vet bill. For additional purchase info (USD 6.00) click here
