I love fiber and all fiber crafts, but I can't even imagine tackling bobbin lacemaking.
Another type of lace is one that is crocheted using fine cotton floss and a small crochet hook. The single and double crochet stitches build upon one another to make a beautiful piece of lace.
Cedar Creek Treasures' (http://www.etsy.com/shop/cedarcreektreasures) owner, Linda, decorates her shop of inspirational plaques and door decor with delicate crocheted doilies. She obviously understands the elegance inherent in lace as shown by a shop photo of her lovely Mother Theresa wall hanging.
Last but not least in my estimation is knitted lace. Sitting peacefully with beautiful yarn following a rhythmic pattern of knits, purls, and yarn-overs is one of the most pleasing things I can do. The baby's Baptismal bonnet is just such knitted lace with a crocheted ruffle:
For a finer example of knitted lace, I have used crochet cotton in cream to knit lace bookmarks. These can be found at my other shop Fiberfads! where my net proceeds are donated to a prolife woman's shelter.
Icing and a pastry bag, paper and scissors, manufactured lace and a sewing machine, crochet cotton and a crochet hook, yarn and knitting needles...it doesn't matter how you make lace, just do it!
