Lace Knitting

18 March 2011

A lovely story here about a wonderful lace knitter – an 87 year old man from Oregon. 

But is it true that Shetland lace originated in Russia?  If you know anything about this, please tell the rest of us.



  1. I’ve never heard that either. Huh. I’m not sure it’s true.

  2. Maybe the person who said that was thinking of the Orenburg shawls which are similar to Shetland shawls.

  3. That was a great read, thanks for sharing.

    As for Shetland lace originating in Russia, I guess it’s possible but I’ve not heard that before.
