"Brad - I just went back and looked at your sample photos again. And I did find some problems. There is a consistent problem with how and where pairs depart the fan or shell in its latter half.  In the photos below the red line is where the pair…"

"Don't worry about it! It's only obvious when you know. Seriously, it's worthwhile learning to do stuff both ways round. Insertions have footsides on both sides, and bookmarks and similar often have headsides on both sides. And…"

"Kate, as Jo says, just turn the pattern upside down, rotate it 180 degrees. As an alternative, since I learned from Doris Southard's book, I usually work with the footside on the left. And for my original patterns I make the diagrams that way…"

"Many thanks for this. I would like to have an edging pattern with the foot side on the left but I cannot find one herd in England. Can you suggest a book I could use?"

"Kate - It isn't just America and England using different systems, it is world wide. In some traditions half stitch is tc, and in Britain nearly everyone (as far as I can tell from this far away) does it ct.  Europeans call ct the…"

"Sharon - Yes, if you are living in England Doris Southard's book may not be the best choice. As you say, nearly everybody in Britain uses the so-called "closed method". Half stitch is ct.  And Doris does it tc. Neither is right…"

"This doesn't look like beginners work to me! It is much better than my first attempts there is no way I could put them onto the site. Well done I am.ooking forward to seeing more of your pieces in the future."

"I started learning from Doris' book, but when I went to my second lesson here in the UK, I found out that I had been learning 'wrong' because Doris is a twist-crosser and American. My teacher obviously was British, was a cross-twister…"

"Here are some examples of lace from my collection of presumably professional lace. I admit I've chosen the worst bits, but you can see how easy it is to get a messy result from half stitch headside - a lot messier than yours! Not that this…"

Brad

Welcome. Please read all the NOTES. They explain our policies, and how the software works. Join any groups that interest you. I especially recommend the BOBBINLACE BEGINNERS and the TORCHON groups, as they fit best with your interests.  Post some photos of your learning pieces in the BEGINNERS group, and some of us will comment. Tell us what book you are using, or do you have a live teacher?  The opening page of every group has lists of resources, both good books and online lessons and sites, and links to photos. Take some time to explore. If you have any questions about this site, contact me and I'll try to help.
