I'm working on a little project for EFN (European Fiber Network). Are you brave enough to wear a doily on your head? If things work out to plan, this lovely "knitted rose" from The Encyclopedia of Knitting compiled by Thérèse de Dillmont in the 1800's is being fashioned into something more hip than the lovely but dowdy knitted lace bedspreads and tablecloths popular in the 19th century. That said, the craftsmanship and symmetry of these old designs are just beautiful. My goal is to find ways to make them work in a modern aesthetic.
