Hi!

I'm a pretty accomplished lace knitter -- but I'm a little intimidated at trying to write out my own pattern for a design. I just haven't quite gotten then mental leap from what I'm knitting to why it *had* to be that way to turn out right, if that makes sense. I'm explaining badly.

Does anyone know of some good resources for pattern-drafting, particularly for lace designwork? I have something I want to do up in lace, but no idea how to convert the pretty picture into the lace design.

Have you looked at the Knitting Lace Workshop book by Susanna Lewis?

There is a book called "Creating your own lace" I picked it up at a used bookstore a few years ago.... it's packed away at the moment, so I will pull it out and find out the author's name for you. I really like it. I will get back to you on that....
