Information

Sol Laces

The sol laces include Teneriffe and Nanduti.  They originated in the highly elaborate corners of drawn thread embroidery, but are now made on a network of threads laid down in a spoke pattern, as radii of a wheel.  Motifs are usually round but can be square or hexagonal.  Nanduti often has very unusual and complex shapes for its motifs.Nandhuti lace, Tenerife lace.

Sandra, although I cannot understand a word of that video, it is worth 1,000 words. That is just about how I do mine, but on a smaller scale and with finer thread. They use a block of wood with nails, I use my two layers of plastic construction with pins. I can take the pins out very easily, so I do a coral knot through the top of the loop, jumping from one loop to the next. As I work the coral knot at the top, I put the pin back in and move to the next loop, take that pin out, coral knot, put pin back in and so forth.

Oh!   In answer to my previous question, I've found this video!   She takes the left hand side of one double strand, and the right hand strand of the double strand to the left and those are the 2 that she knots together.   So the knot is done around 2 spokes from 2 side by side double spokes.   The part about the finishing knots at the edge is around 11:20 in the video:

I have a question about the lasst set of knots, that is close to the edge of the circle.    My directions say to split the 2 strands and make the knot.   Do they mean, knot one of the strands, and skip the other ~or~ do they mean put a knot in each of the 2 strands that lay together?  Here's a pic of where I separated and put a knot on one of the strands of each set.... I think it's wrong.

WOW! That is a lot of WIPs. I made a list of mine some time back and then they numbered approx 80. I have finished a few since then, but I always start new things too.

Long ago my friend made lists of her pieces.  She currently has 190 pieces of embroidery in progress, 460 ready to work on and 200 finished.  She had 20 pieces that she has finished in the past 2 years in the local exhibit last week.  She works on different pieces depending on the season or deadlines or where she will be.  She has portable projects for trips and waiting rooms and larger projects for home.  Her life is not dull and she makes good use of her time.  She's always going places and stitching.

How dull life would be without a cupboard full of UFOs to go back to now and again!!!!!!

I wanted to leave this link to pictures that I found on facebook - the photo album is public, and she has many examples of this kind of work and of a craft exhibit workshop, also.   I'm guessing it's in Russia, can't tell for sure!

Liz, I'm sure I have both you and Jenny beaten in UFOs, I just can't count that high to know the actual number.    The dumb thing is, is that no notes were required!   It was written in the pattern, and seemed so simple that I thought on the second one I knew what to do without looking - wrong!    

I see you tat also.   I started tatting in Dec 2015, and have collected enough tiny balls of thread to make a fool of myself.   I seem to be a lazy crafter.   I want to learn the basics and do stuff, but then hedge on learning the more technical stitches that would produce more than just a 1 round ring/chain motif!   I hope to break that nasty habit! :(

Liz, I think I would challenge you to the number of UFO's. Last count was over 50, and now I have started something else with a new baby arriving in the family later this year. My Teneriffe has been put on hold to knit a baby shawl, though my bobbin lace handkie edge does sit at the end of the dining table & sees light a few days each week.

Sandra, they look great. Well done.  I know almost nothing about this type of lace craft, - but I know when things look OK!!!!!!  I rather like the different centres, too.

As Jenny says, write down each change of stitch, and how many rounds you do of each stitch, etc - as it is so easy to forget.  I do various bobbin and needle laces, and find jotting down notes, or what thread I am using, etc a great help if I put things down, start something else, then go back to the first piece later on!  I am a great one for having a stack (or stash!) of UFO's!!

Do keep showing us your progress with this craft.  You might even get others of us to have a go!!
