Lacy Eggs Lacy Eggs

Lacy Easter Eggs

These eggs are adapted from the Lacy Flower above. Available with either a circular or oval center, in an assortment of spring colors (below). You can choose to make the center four rows the same color as the main threads or different for an accent. The accent color looks especially nice with the circular center, which can look like a flower. Choose the circle or oval, plus main and accent colors of Lizbeth thread for your kit. (628 is a little more peachy than in the photo.) See the Gallery for a few more of the 100 possible color combinations. Level 3.

Five Snowflakes

Snowflakes

Five different snowflakes, from level 1 to level 3+, from mostly weaving to mostly knots. Each is a separate kit with a custom loom.

Crystal is a good beginner project with its easy, bold woven spikes.
Level 1 ~ 3.25 inches (8.25 cm) ~ 9.50 USD

Cosy - how is a snowflake cosy? It's made with soft pearl cotton instead of Lizbeth like the others, and reminds me of a soft blanket of snow or a warm sweater.
Level 1 ~ 3.25 inches (8.25 cm) ~ 9.50 USD

Starburst is another pattern derived from the Lacy Flower. Using a slightly different technique for some of the knots will keep the long lines smooth, so experience is recommended.
Level 3+ ~ 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) ~ 10.50 USD

Fern isn't as sharp and icy as the rest, but it seems to have a hypnotic quality that people like. It is worked on a circular loom and then cut to shape.
Level 3 ~ 3.25 inches (8.25 cm) ~ 10.50 USD

Radiant is also worked on a circular loom then cut to shape like Fern. But like Starburst there are long lines that look best when made with a slightly different knotting technique, so experience is recommended.
Level 3+ ~ 4 inches (10 cm) ~ 10.50 USD

White and Blue Butterflies

Butterfly

Butterflies are a traditional Teneriffe lace pattern. This one is pretty in plain cordonnet thread or a mixture of thread and Kreinik metallics. There are two different edges, solid squares or a dainty (and slightly trickier) fillagree, and thread for both is included. See the Gallery for the other available colors. Level 2.

Approximately 3.25 inches (8.25 cm) diameter

10.50 USD with Lizbeth cordonnet

Christmas Wreath

Christmas Wreath

This wreath is worked on a ring, not a circle (so there are 160 pins!) Thread is included for an optional ribbon or bow at the end. It's easy to wind and knot, then keeping the leaves precise can be tricky. Level 3, or make the leaves free-form and it's a level 2.

Approximately 5 inches (13 cm) diameter

Sun and Moon

Sun and Moon

This kit include both the sun and moon. They use many different threads, beads, and a twill weave. It is a relatively advanced project, but there are detailed instructions for each step. Level 3+.
