There is a new blog I want to tell you about.  She started the blog just to help my group on raverly but figured others would want to go there too who are interested in RPL.  She grew up doing this type of lace during the cold war times and tells stories of learning how to do this with her mother and the hard times of that era.  But she also tells you how to make RPL cords, pattern drafting and in time so much more she is going to have a RPLAL in July so go over quick tell her sunshine sent you.  Get your pattern ready make your cord and get ready for master help.

Master RPLAL list for 2012

Notice the new header.  That is a hint of some of the future RPLAL that will happen this year.  I see January, February, June, October and  November and just some I am doing for me and not the tutorials.  There are others for those months that I have not shown yet but the entire year is planned. I may add more as the year goes on but this is how i t stands so far.

2012 blog header

I am hoping having this be the first post of the first month in 2012 will make it easy for people to find it for future reference.

This is the main post for the series of tutorial I will be doing all year long.  I will update it after every new post and add the links.  And there will be photos added so you can have a visual reference on the right side of the post of what each project looks like.
Terms

  1. RPL: Romanian Point Lace
  2. RPLAL:  Romanian Point Lace along meaning a lot of people are working on this at the same time and there are forums to ask your questions on as well as here
  3. solid: no fabric in the middle all filling stitches and cord.
  4. tile:  means it is square probably and will work well for making larger items by making many of them and tiling them together like granny squares

If I do not write solid on a doily it means it has a fabric center for you to embroider on and I will not be going over that area as that is for you to decide what you want to do there.  Here is the list for the next 12 months and what will be taught.
