Knitting Traditions

We’ve received a shipment of the Fall edition of Knitting Traditions!


From the editor…

This seventh edition of PieceWork’sKnitting Traditions is all about lace–its magic and mystery and its ethereal quality–as expressed in knitting.

The word ‘lace’ comes from the Latin verb laqueare, ‘to ensnare.’ Many believe that lace originated with efforts to reproduce the web made by nature’s consummate lacemaker, the spider. The openwork fabric that would come to be known as lace originated in the sixteenth century, and the lace industry quickly became a force to be reckoned with. Lace made and broke national economies. Women and men died trying to possess the finest examples. Smugglers devised creative (and some ghoulish) ways to avoid paying taxes and duties on it. Numerous governments established laws that restricted who could wear it.

Each piece of lace speaks so eloquently to the beauty and value of work done by someone’s hand, whether that of an unknown maker of the past or one of today’s practitioners of lace knitting. And the lacemakers’ stories are just as intriguing as their lace.

In these pages, you’ll find stunning stoles, scarves, and shawls, an entire section with lace patterns from Victorian England, and lacy edgings, doilies, socks, and more. In addition to new patterns designed for this edition, our archives yielded a selection of older lace patterns that are no longer widely available.

Although knitting lace came along a little later than lace in its earliest forms–bobbin and needle–its fascinating history is still centuries old, and its traditions grow stronger with the addition of each new lace knitter to the fold. Please enjoy Knitting Traditions’ look at lace!” –Jeane Hutchins, editor

Whats on the Needles at Tangled Yarns

Kimley has been dipping her toes into felting this week, and has produced
a fabulous vintage cloche by Erica Jackofsky.

Fulmar in Malabrigo Sock and Fibre Company Meadow


Anita has made some very handsome socks for her husband this week in Cascade 220 SuperwashThuja by Bobby Ziegler.


Derrin has finally hopped on the Hitchhiker bandwagon, with a twist!

Instead of using a fingering weight, Derrin chose to use Noro Silk Garden and Cascade Eco Alpaca for a more substantial look in a cooler climate.


Derrin has also finished her
Mapleton by Deanne Ramsay this week. She used Noro Silk Garden Sock and used a 5mm crochet hook for a nice, drapey feel to the shawl.

This would also look lovely in our Noro Taiyo Sock!


Lauren has been working on a few more baby things for her upcoming arrival!


First up is Rainbow Dress by Georgie Hallam in Biggan Design DK Merino
– it is such a classic piece for a little girl!



Next, Lauren has made a little cardigan in bright Poppy Red Cascade Ultra Pima
Autumn Leaves by Nikki Van De Car.
