I think this is bobbin lace, a beautiful doily , I bought this spring in Barcelona, Spain.
Bought at a swap meet, that was set in the center of one of the 'squares' set up by local
venders. Would have spent hours there, but within minutes of browsing the rain in Spain came
down in sheets! But not before I bartered for this~
This was bought locally, it's a Orenburg black Cobweb Shawl, I think. While browsing
through Value Village, on the 1/2 off day, last summer I came across this
bunched up with a plastic hook stuck in to hang it. I knew it was hand knit, I knew it was
cobweb lace. I couldn't take the hook off unless I bought it. I didn't know the condition.
So I "rolled the dice" for 1.49 + tax.
I to my great pleasure it was amazingly perfect. I have no idea the pattern
or maker. Let me know if any of you recognize the pattern~
P.S. The cobweb yarn is mohair to add to the difficulty of knitting this piece.
My camera try's to catch all the fuzzy, really hard to get a good photo.
