Milanese lace

Well I started my new piece last night - it was fun to be something different, although so far I've mostly been doing a cloth stitch trail, so not that exciting. It's using a finer thread that I usually use (100 Brok cotton), and when I got to class 2 pairs which I had winded on ready for the start had already snapped - urrrgh, this doesn't bode well....

I learnt a new way of starting a trail though, and also how to do a blind pin. Best of all, there was some visible progress in just 2 hours... Hopefully next week I'll get some more done and at that point I'll post a picture - it's just a white blob at the moment!!
