Piecework May/June 2012

The latest issue of Piecework arrived in my mailbox today!

It is the 5th Annual Lace issue!!

There is an absolutely exquisite Russian Triangular Butterfly Shawl, designed by Inna Voltchkova, to knit.  I think this has to be one of the most beautiful pieces of lace I have ever seen!  If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may know that I am not big on large projects - and this would be one of those large projects.  However, I may just have to make an exception.  This is so beautiful!

Also in this issue, Bucks Point Lace article with a Bucks Point Bobbin-Lace Edging to Make, by Jo Ann Eurell.

Reticella Needle Lace to Stitch, by Bronislava Bacilkova.

A Lacy Ribbonwood and Fern Scarf to Knit, by Margaret Stove.

Margaretenspitze (Margarete's Lace), which is a type of hand-knotted lace - article as well as a tutorial on the technique and a flower project, by Marji Suhm.

There is a lot more lace goodness in this issue, so if you love lace, be sure to get your copy!
