Another type of Lace-has possibilities!

Patt.397=a normal Threadlace pattern knitted using Brother 
        Main Bed & Ribber.

Pattern 403 another Threadlace pattern done on Doublebed,
both are useful for yarns which
are not exactly smooth.

Some other patterns lend themselves to the same 
type of knitting, but can result in different textures
when the second yarn is a woolly Nylon,the knitting
appears raised,as in embossing!

Lace Offsets or not

To offset or not?
Some Lace Patterns lend themselves very well to Offsetting and improve
when thus handled, yet amazingly some offsetting becomes detrimental to the general look and appeal of the changes.

The Webshot Slideshow of changed patterns from the Stitchworld 940
book is a good example of patterns which have benefitted by being
offset, yet the reverse can be said for other patterns.

Showing are 2 examples of a handlace-converted pattern, which I
did in both versions.
The comparisons speak for themselves!

Lace & Fairisle design emphasis

This will be the last Lace & Fairisle trial for a while,
the floats used here are tiny as one can see!
There are many more possibilities for this type of filled Lace,but since I don't intend using 
them in the near future , I will be changing to aome other techniques for while.
