Here you see the total of my purchases from the vendor (Lacy Susan) at the lace group's workshop last weekend.
Can you fathom such restraint?! And one of these isn't even for me.
I was quite tempted by one book, Kunststrik II, which you can see here, but it was written in Danish and charted quite differently to charts that I am used to reading.
Since I have found a few very nice knitted lace doily patterns free online, I thought I should first give them a try.
The skeins of ecru and white coton a broder in lower right of the photo will be put away for a bit. These complete the size range for me and will, hopefully, one day soon be used for a piece of Schwalm embroidery.
