" Think this reply is great too. I’m always very critical of my work. I think Hazel’s piece is lovely. Well done!"

"I LOVE your attitude, Jo!!  We worry far too much about how things are not perfect...!  How boring things would be if they Were perfect all the time!!  Nothing to gloat over (or grizzle about if it is your own work!!! ) Hazel, I would…"

"Ah, thank you.  I see what you mean now.  I will try that.  I have had it on my pillow for the second day now and the thought of joining it has been scaring me but will bite the bullet!  :-) "

"I think so. You presumably have got three pairs on the same pin at the start. Lift the pin out and replace it with three pins, right next to each other. Then join the equivalent ending pair.But you may be worrying too much about this! First of all,…"

"Hi Jo, thanks for the suggestion which seems a good one.  Am I understanding correctly to say that the thread stitched around one pin hole needs to be joined to the thread stitched around the corresponding pin hole?  If so, where would I…"

"Essentially, you're joining one pair at the end to one pair at the beginning. So there should be three pairs that you're trying to join. Add another pin or two to separate out the three pairs into more than one group."

Joining the End to the Beginning

I am learning Torchon Lace and have just finished a piece where I need to join the end to the beginning.  I have a Lazy Susan which I found on eBay and understand the basics of how to do the join except for where I have three pairs that need to go through one hole and I am trying to find a way of doing it which doesn't add a lot of bulk.  From what I understand, there are several ways of doing this.  Can anyone suggest a way that looks neat, not too bulky but which is also secure, please?…See More

"On this piece you can follow the colors to see how pairs enter and leave the cloth stitch section. Most of the time, in torchon, pairs leave at a pin directly below the pin where they entered."

Jane Meier replied to Hazel Roots's discussion How to Recognise when to Pick Up or Drop off Pairs in the group Torchon
"Hello.  For me, the easiest way to tell is to pick up the possible pair and pull it over to the pinhole. Even though Cloth Stitch is worked horizontally, pairs are still entering and leaving diagonally so it is obvious when a pair needs to…"

How to Recognise when to Pick Up or Drop off Pairs

Hi, I am a beginner working my way through the Beginners Guide to Bobbin Lace book and have just started the trails bookmark.  I previously had tried a bookmark which included chevron type shapes from another beginner's book.  I understand that pairs of bobbins need to be fed in from the ground or dropped off in the ground in order to make the shape or leave the shape to continue the ground as this has been explained to me by a friend who does torchon lace.  Is there a description of this…See More
