Loreli, that tally work is amazing. It looks like the needle weaving bands used to decorate Schwalm work. There a few other pics in amongst the group that I swore were needle weaving, but looking close they are definately tallies.

Igor Beros posted 200+ photos from a lace day at Krakovany in Slovakia. Among the photos was this one of a lace made entirely of tallies. I suppose you could call it torchon, since it is a geometric straight lace. Notice that the pricking has no pattern, just rows of holes. Evidently the lace maker decides where the different colors will go, and how wide the piece will be. Several earlier photos in the set show this kind of lace. Interesting and unusual.

Here is a link to the entire set of photos.

I love this scarf. I have never thought of making one. You are very clever.
Well done!

Some very pretty things - I particularly like the little lace metal-frame bag.

Comment by Kate Bainbridge on September 7, 2015 at 6:23am
These photos are wonderful. I have some of the patterns but they are very hard to set up. Now I have seen them in progress I shall make more effort. Many thanks.

From a lace day in Spain, today. Mostly torchon.

Lorelei - thank you for the hint fort he books! I had downloaded "Catálogo de Encaixe Galego Tradicional" years ago because I had a lacemaking friend frrom Galicia. At that time I had not seen the other books. I downloaded them right away for consultation should I run out of ideas. Thanks again.
