January 6, 2009, I felt like wanting to try bobbin lace making again, and took out my cookie pillow and bobbins. Instructions are in german. Found the book at the American Memorial Library. The books has lots of small projects, also by Ulla, and I am going to try making them.

This lace was perfect for refreshing the stitches and techniques in torchon lace making I have learned so far. There are still lots of techniques to learn. Torchon and the Russian Tape Laces are the easiest, in my opinion.

It can also be used as a bookmarker.
