Hairpin Lace Crochet
Hello :-)

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with doing this - I found a really pretty pattern that I'd love to try, but have never done Hairpin before. It says it needs a loom, which I've looked for on the net, but they seem to be few and far between. I wonder if I could make my own one, but was wondering if other people have any thoughts they could share?

Hair pin lace
I have done hair pin lace and it isn't that difficult. At Annie's Attic there is a tutorial on it and at www.needlepointers.com. You can get help at either place. As for a loom, if there is a JoAnn's Fabric or a knitting shop nearby you should be able to find one. It seems that hair pin lace is making a comeback. My small local knitting shop carries hair pin lace looms.

Thanks so much! Just found a tutorial both on how to do hairpin lace *and* how to make my own loom! :-)

Will be trying that out... need to find some florist's foam that my cat won't eat now....

Unfortunately, there's nowhere near me that does the looms - the wilds of Scotland have few knitting shops, although I noticed a new one yesterday, so might have to go have a look *dum di dum* *whistle*

Hey Willowangel,

could you pretty please post the links to the hairpin and loom-making tutorials? That would be awesome!

Thanks

Hey again,

Sorry, been kind of out of it for a couple of days!

Here's the link - haven't had a chance to try it out yet, unfortunately.

Have fun!
Will post results once I get 2 seconds to try it ;-)
