I am using Wendy "Happy" 4ply. Its a lovely soft silky yarn made of 75% Bamboo and 25% nylon. Colour calls itself Virgo, I am more inclined to call it raspberry ripple!! Easy to work with but does have a slight tendency to split when undone too often!!
What was your inspiration?
Lace in all it forms has always fascinated me, (I used to be a Bobbin lace maker), so when I saw Laura's course on facebook I thought yes this is for me! and I am delighted to say that I am now hooked!
What are you most proud of?
Sticking with it and undoing it several times until I got it right!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient with yourself, you learn as much by undoing as by doing!
I think that it would make it harder if any yarn thinner than our English 4ply was used.
