Hello everyone, one of the things we been doing during lockdown is taking our Gladys Amedro and lace patterns and adding them to Ravelry and Lovecraft’s as PDF downloads. They are all pre-digital age so it means scanning each page and reformatting them, and as they are all written out that can mean quite a few pages!
During the 1980s and 1990’s Gladys Designed a wide range of Shetland Lace patterns for J&S, they are still some of our best sellers and are seen as some of the most accomplished things you can tackle as a knitter.
So we’ve added most of the 1ply Shawls that were left to do as well as all the matching Christening Gowns/Robes:
As well as the Gladys Patterns that were left we’ve also added the lace scarf patterns:
And the Stole, Jacket/Bonnet and Grace Jumper:
Unfortunately, we don’t have all the samples of the lace items – some because they are from a long time ago and we just don’t have them anymore or we’re not able to photograph them at the moment but by ensuring they are all listed on Ravelry it means people can link their projects to them so if you’ve ever made any of these patterns please link them – they are an important part of our history as some over the patterns go back over 30 years!
So if you have some time on your hands and some 1ply Cobweb, 1ply Supreme, 2ply Lace or 2ply Supreme this could be the perfect chance to try out some Shetland Lace. Thanks as always for all your support and patience, happy knitting!
