Shetland lace blouses

This is following on with the theme of knitting from the Northern Isles.

When you see knitted lace, it is usually an edging for something, or a scarf or shawl.

But as these pictures show, that was not always the case. This post about lace blouses shows the potential for this technique.

Although given my history of wrecking shetland lace scarves by getting them caught in things, I don’t think I’ll be going in that direction.

And by the way, if you are ever in Shetland, you really must go to the Shetland Museum.
