I am embarking on an interesting journey in my lace. I friend of mine who spins flax(who also is a beginner bobbin lacer) spun some linen thread out of her stock. She gave me a hank and I told her I would see how it laced up. Mind you, it is very rough thread, yet fine enough(like 50 weight cotton). I found this picture of one spinning flax. I plan on using the picture as my design and lacing directly from it. In the photo attached you can see I have pinned the picture to my bolster pillow and wound some large bobbins waiting to get started. After it is finished, I will give it to my friend, the spinner/lacemaker. I will keep you posted on my progress.
