Lace Sampler – Huck Lace 2

By Leigh

These are the rest of the photos from my huck lace sampler. All are woven in 12/2 cotton, sett at 24 epi.

This last one was a bit of a challenge for me. One of the lessons in the workshop involved an introduction to designing huck lace. The assignment included figuring out the treadle tie-up for a couple of drafts. Having never learned how to do this, I was stumped! After quick plea for help to the Guild's message board, I was able to work it out and was rewarded with a very nice design. Here it is on the loom:

And after washing.

As intrigued as I am with this weave structure, I can't stop my mind from wondering "what if...." about color. So my plan is to take a brief detour before moving onto the next lace structure, and try a couple of color ideas with huck and huck lace.

I have been following your blog for quite some time now. Absolutely love it!. I am looking for a huck lace pattern for a bridal shawl. I have tencel and silk. Ideas?
Is this part of the complex weavers study group?

Thanks for sharing, Leigh. I love that last sample which you designed! I can't say I've ever seen a woven lace sample quite like that....good job!

Have you listened to the latests issue of Weavecast? Laura Fry (of Magic in the Water fame) is interviewed...your samples bear out her information.
