From Monday, Ella and Sandra will be taking care of the blog as well as keeping in touch through Twitter, Facebook, Ravelry and email. We’ve written this post together, saying hello and goodbye at the same time. Wish us all luck…

    All beautiful works. But nr. 7, “Shetland Bound” is absolutely fabulous !!!
    Well done, Monique, you deserve your place in here.

    Are these patterns to be published in a book? I never buy kits, but would buy a book which included these patterns, they are a lovely collection.

    I didn’t like the Shetland Crescent by looking at the picture on your blog, but looked it up on Ravelry and just had to put it in my queue 🙂

    I love Monique Boonstra, she knitted the finest Shetland lace!!!

    Wonderfull, the 2012 lace-collection is mindblowing… Monique’s design “Shetland Bound” is the finest. Empress of Lace ought te be replaced with the “Goddess of Lace” (or somewhat bigger yet…) Mind you: she learned the trick by trial and error, with no help whatsoever…

    What a stunning collection! I am a starter and will follow a few workshops by Monique Boonstra. Please make a book with patterns or kits with these lovely shawls!

    Quarry by Ina Irvine is my favourite one but they are all lovely. 🙂
