Look for us in Vogue Knitting Holiday issue!
The Old Shale e-book published by our guild's Wednesday afternoon knitting study group is mentioned in the new holiday issue of Vogue Knitting! As of this writing (October 22) it doesn't appear to be on newsstands yet, but subscription copies are arriving, and the electronic version of the magazine is available online.
Old Shale: Variations of an Old and Much Loved Lace Stitch can be downloaded for free from Ravelry. It includes discussions about this lovely, old lace stitch, along with a little bit of the controversy over its name (is this really Feather and Fan?). There are charts and row-by-row instructions for each variation and a great idea for making a beautiful baby blanket.
