2020 Knitting Plans and How They’ve Changed

Bobbin Lace Bookmark: A Modern Take on an Old-World Craft by Cori Large

It’s finally here! One of my 2019 Goals was to self-publish my book Bobbin Lace Bookmark: A Modern Take on an Old-World Craft on Amazon/KDP. I’m so proud of myself for working hard and completing this goal. It has allowed me to achieve a life-long dream of becoming a published author. It is available in both paperback and eBook form. I will be filming a few accompanying How-To videos for this book shortly, and this post will be updated with those links shortly.

In this book, I take you through a brief history of bobbin lace, how to create the paper template you’ll be using, how to measure the crochet thread, set up the wooden bobbins, set up the lace pillow, and take you step-by-step through the pattern so by the end you will have made a lace bookmark.

There are over 70 pictures to help the novice get started and check themselves throughout the pattern. At the end of the book, I provide a list of organizations, websites, and YouTube channels the user can consult for further help.

My wonderful and lovely friend, Ann, who is the dyer behind Twin Mommy Creations, had a mini skein Advent Calendar this year, and I just had to get it. OR I just had to get it for it to be from my husband for Christmas! Cuz y’all know I have a mini skein addiction!

It’s been awhile! I didn’t really have anything new to show you while a few weeks ago when I would have filmed this episode normally. I’m glad I waited, because I had LOTS to show off.
