Bobbin Lace bookmark with a purple gimp
I am really getting into bobbin lace now. I fancied having a go at what they call a gimp. This is the thicker purple thread that is woven though the finer work (here in white). The pattern is from Torchon Lacemaking: A manual of techniques by Elizabeth Wade. It was a little tricky at the transition between the half stitch and the whole stitch shadow, but I think I got the hang of it in the end. I am still working on my bobbin lace lavender cushion. That should be my next bobbin lace project I post about. I am also starting to think about designing my own patterns, once I get the hang of it I will post some of my ideas.
