finger-manipulated lace weaves

Sample 7: Sampler illustrating a minimum of four finger-manipulated lace weaves such as Spanish lace, Brooks bouquet, Danish medallion, and leno.

I had some extra warp on the loom after the color blanket and tried a crayola lace sampler with the remainder. Here are my medallions, looking like eyes framed in purple eyeliner.

The beaded thread in the leno section was hand-spun by the Knitting Hamster (a.k.a. Faith and Alan Stone), who spin marvelous creations. They made this yarn for me with hand-dyed merino spun around a copper wire core.

The garish colours in Roy-G-Biv order demanded a plastic intervention: some children's magic markers.
