This series evolved out of my sketchbook studies of lace knitting. About ten years ago I taught myself heritage lace knitting using graphs. It took me years to get a handle on it and I'm far from being good at it but I enjoyed the process at the time. Knitting has been a significant craft in my family and my beloved late grandmother taught me when I was about 4 years old. My Mother has always been a knitter and a spinner.
