I have been knitting for more years than I care to count but I had never knit lace. In '98 I spun some fine, black alpaca yarn that just begged to be lace so I designed a shawl and, as they say, the rest is history. Lace has become my passion and the Crazy Lace Lady was born.
I am a lover of dragons and other mythical beasts. In a what-if moment, I decided to see if I could knit a dragon in lace. Heere Be Dragone evolved from my needles to become the first of many of the very unique 'Picture Lace' shawls.
I get to spend most of my day (and sometimes the middle of the night) designing, knitting and teaching lace. Knitting has led to wonderful friends and the satisfaction of creating beautiful things
Bold, stylized dragonflies, butterflies, vines and flowers grace this lovely shawl. A twisted stitch, ivy pattern throughout simplifies counting stitches in the pearl background.
The majority of the shawl is knit, in the round, from the center out. The 4 corners are added, then the border. The pattern is charted.
