"That looks like a Milanese lace braid"
"I could make that Milanese lace pattern"
"I could make the helmet in lace"
"I could make a lace Loki"
"I could DO that!"
"Dude, I am SO doing that!"
Well, after much time putting together the right angles and working in Illustrator on my *bleeping* PC I have the following. The flow chart Loki and the Pricking Template Loki.
In order to proced I needed a pillow, some bobbins, and thread. I had lace on both my pillows and borrowed bobbins. I have since spangeled all my bobbins . . .
and cleared my pillow of the Milanese moon.
I will do my best to document and share my Loki lace project for I, like the god of mischief, am burdened with a glorious purpose! Or just a crazy idea.
