oh! Galina

Still a little overcast here today so I can't seem to get a picture of this tatting to show it's true colors, but I think if you click to open it up to a bigger size it might help.

I'm still in love with how the colors are playing out and also still not sure what I may use it for. I'm thinking - bag/embellishment. Surprised? Me neither.

In the meantime, I keep thinking about Galina and those gossamer shawls. What a treat to see them 'in person'. In fact treat doesn't begin to describe it.

I was thrilled to find a podcast with an interview with Galina. It is over an hour long and isn't as much an interview as a long narrative by Galina discussing the Orenburg lace tradition, knitting in communist Russia, and how she ended up in America as author, instructor, and historian of Orenburg traditional lace knitting.

How pretty! It looks like little dancing flowers!

I'm amazed that that little shuttle is doing that. I never could figure it out, no matter how hard I practiced. You do beautiful work! Yes, love that colorway.
