Jenny replied to Trinity's discussion Graph paper for Hardanger patterns in the group Hardanger Embroidery, Pulled Thread Work and Drawn Thread Work
"I do my graphs digitally on Corel. As Hardanger is done in blocks over 4 threads, I usually use a 1/4”  graph paper and make one square = 1 block.  In my opinion, the darker line spacing is irrelevant. It’s there for easier…"

Tell us more about your lace interests.
I have been crocheting since a young child, learnt tatting as a teenager, introduced to bobbin lace in my 20's & needlelace in my 40's. My favourites are those done with a needle, especially reticella, drawn thread, & tenneriffe lace. Bedfordshire is my favourite of the bobbin laces, which I am trying to teach myself.
