Fan of the Century Revisiting the Lady of Lace

I love making lace.  Lot of it!  All kinds of different techniques.  My favorite is bobbin lace.  Here’s a lady, Janya Sugunnasil, that has taken it to a new art form.  Now this article was published last year but I just came across it today.

Woodland Walk

This is one of the things that I’ve been working on lately.  It started out as a roving that I bought from Edgewood Garden Studio on Zibbet.  http://www.zibbet.com/EdgewoodGardenStudio I just “happened” to be perusing spinning fiber purveyors on Zibbet. And I came across this roving.  After a few days of visiting it, I finally bought the roving on April 3rd.  I started spinning it on April 14th and finished on May 12th.  Out of 4.2 oz of wonderful fiber, I managed to squeeze out 1,115 yards of a 2 ply lace weight yarn.  NOW the big question is…what am I going to do with it?  Make a lace shawl?   Make a lace dress?  Sell it as a monster skein of yarn?  I just don’t know at this time.

On your mark! Get set! GO!!!

I finally made the plunge.  I started my own blog.  Some of the things I hope to do is:  the fiber stuff I play with (weaving, spinning, lace making, quilting and a host of other things) include some tutorials of the fiber arts stuff I do, business mentoring and a wide variety of goodies.  If you want to see some of what I do go to either one of my stores:  http://www.zibbet.com/SusieRoseDesigns  or  http://www.zibbet.com/MountainRose Foods .

Not much for a start.  But it is a start.
