This is a collage of different bobbin lace grounds, all of which I discovered by experimentation. I use a computer algorithm to find workable thread pair diagrams and then I play with different cross and twist combinations at each crossing. For a complete description of this process, please look at my research paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1406.1532 or visit my web site: http://web.uvic.ca/~vmi/

Fascinating.   4.2 actually looks a lot like something I've seen in Binche. I'll have to search through my books. Tomorrow.

Thank you.  Several of the grounds use the same pair diagram and vary just by changing the cross and twist actions performed when the pairs meet.  For example, using your numbering scheme, the following are related:

  • 2.2 (mostly cloth stitch), 3.1 (half stitch) and 5.1 (whole stitch)
  • 2.1 and 5.3
  • 2.4 and 4.1
  • 3.2 and 5.2.

It was a lot of fun playing around with the pair diagrams to see what stitches might look attractive.

I also enjoyed seeing the other examples on your web page.

These are fascinating.  They are all visually striking. I tend to like best the ones that have the most stability for actual use. I'll number the columns left to right and the samples downward. My favorites are

1.2     2.2      2.3     3.1     4.1   4.2    4.3     5.1    5.3

This has been quite a project. Congratulations.
