Shetland Lace: A Londoner's Approach with Gwen Bortner
Shetland lace knitting is a beloved tradition with a unique construction method. In 1975 Gladys Amedro, originally of London, moved to the island of Yell in Shetland and began designing Shetland lace using a combination of traditional and non-traditional methods. In this class we will knit a swatch using Mrs. Amedro's method of working from the edge to the center.
Lace-weight merino yarn will be supplied by the teacher.
Note: Must be able to execute standard increases and decreases, and basic chart reading. Experience with lace-weight yarn required.


Supplies
3.5mm/US4 needles, both circular and double-pointed, scissors, stitch markers and the usual knitting kit. Sharp tipped needles are essential to working with lace-weight yarn.
Knitting Basics: sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles of various sizes.

Homework
None.
