Shetland Lace Knitting
We will start by looking at Shetland lace (as opposed to other kinds of knitted lace) and then there will be a choice of activities. There will be an opportunity to learn to chart lace, a chance to knit a bookmark or start a mini shawl, or for the more experienced, the chance to work out the stitch pattern from a photo of an antique Shetland shawl.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who can knit, purl, cast on, cast off etc. You do not have to have done any lace before. It is also suitable for those who have done some lace and want to explore the Shetland tradition further.
