Charting Estonian stitch patterns

I'm contemplating charting some of the stitch patterns shown in this blog so that you all can incorporate them into your personal knitting. Anybody love or object to this idea? Speak now. I will use the Craft Yarn Council symbols as much as possible. I can't guarantee the rate at which they will get done but I feel compelled to add more content to this blog. I can't believe the last post was 3 years ago!

What a wonderful thing to do! Thank you!

I'm in favor of it! I'd be happy to test charts, too, as time permits.

Ok, then. Since there is interest, I will try to tackle the job. I am in love with pattern # 213 but it might be a hefty one to start out with. I want to design a shawl around it. I'll pick a simpler one so that we can do a test drive. I'm so happy that someone still follows this blog!

I am new to lace and just found the blog. I would love to see charts for the lace.

Thank you!

I am also new to lace & just found this blog. I would absolutely love to see these charted. I have seen several I would like to make a scarf or shawl from.
Thanks!!!

Im in! If you need someone to help test your designs, please call on me.

There is a MOST beautiful stitch pattern which I would dearly love to charted, but Im not experienced (or patient) enough to work it out myself. What do you think of it?

I am interested in charted estonian patterns, especially #206. Also, does your group still meet anywhere, that I could join? I am in Alpena,MI but could travel.

I will try to work on charting 206. There has been interest in it before. Our group has pretty much disbanded. A few of us meet irregularly in Mason, MI but that would be too far for you to come. Are you on Ravelry?
