knittedyarns Marianne Kinzel’s Lace Primula Doily Becomes A Shawl

Marianne Kinzel’s First Book of Modern Lace Knitting was the last book that I bought at The Point last March before it went out of business. The book is a great resource of lace patterns with BOTH instructions and charts. It has an introduction to lace knitting including doilies which shows step by step photographs of […]

knittedyarns 5 Suggestions to Help Knit Mommes Lysedug Lace

I finally finished my Mommes Lysedug lace scarf! Mind you, it took me almost an hour to do the bind off! Having  done a lot of comparisons across circular shawls and doilies, I thought that it would use most of the 950 yards of the Oxblood colored Madeline Tosh superwash merino lace weight wool that […]

knittedyarns More Antique Lace Doily Knitting-Mommes Lysedug

While I promised myself that I wouldn’t allow knitting UFOs to accumulate this year, the fact that my 40″ Hiya Hiya circular needles broke was a great excuse for starting a new project. I have wanted to make a lace shawl from the Madeline Tosh Lace Superwash Merino that I bought from Webs at Stitches […]

knittedyarns Heirloom Lace Doily Placements on Long Beach

After being stalled on the train home from Montauk last weekend, my husband wasn’t up for making the trek out to the beach. Instead we went to Long Beach which is about an hour from New York City. This still allows us to get out of the city and experience the sandy beaches of Long […]

knittedyarns Shiri Mor's Botanica Medallion Sweater from Vogue Knitting

When I started knitting lace doilies, one of my friends suggested that I check out the pattern on the cover of Vogue Knitting Summer 2009. It’s an unusual pattern by Shiri Mor. It’s more of a vest than a sweater. It consists of a center circle knit in the round like a doily and a […]

knittedyarns Heirloom Lace Doily Placemats

My Heirloom Lace Doily Placement project is half done! I am using a free heirloom lace pattern that I came across on Ravelry. I choice Liz Snella’s  pattern since it had natural breaks for color changes; also it has text and charts which are helpful. For color changes, there are areas where there are 3-4 […]

knittedyarns Not Your Grandmother's Antique Lace Doilies

Of late, I have been drawn to old fashioned lace doilies. It’s not that I have a burning need for lace doilies or that I am redecorating every flat surface of my apartment with perfectly round circles of tiny little stitches of white knitting cotton. Rather it’s the way that the patterns emerge as you […]

knittedyarns Hemlock Ring Blankie-Vacation Projects Begin!

Lately, I’ve been bitten by a lace doily bug. There is some about knitting round and round and watching the pattern slowly evolve. Perhaps its the influence of Marion Kinzel’s Lace Knitting Volume 1. As a result, I’ve been trolling Ravelry and the internet for vintage lace doily patterns. In the process, I kept finding […]

knittedyarns Planning Vacation Knitting

This year, we’re going to Fire Island for a beach vacation where we both get to indulge in our hobbies. My husband wind surfs in the bay and I knit on the ocean beach. In preparation, I plan out my knitting, especially since there aren’t any yarn stores on Fire Island in case I run […]
