Anne Eunson Loves Lace So She Knit Herself a Garden Fence and It Looks Gorgeous … Now With Pattern!
UPDATED = there’s a pattern!
A resident of Hamnavoe, in Shetland, Anne Eunson decided to knit herself a beautiful lace fence using twine.
According to Kate Davies (who took the lovely photos above), the “fence is fashioned from strong black twine (the same kind that is used to make fishing nets) and Anne knitted it up on specially adapted curtain poles. It took her about three weeks to knit enough lace to surround her front garden, using a 23 stitch repeat of a familiar Shetland lace pattern.”
Fabulous work by Anne Eunson, I’m in love!
Hi, have you asked Anne for permission to reproduce these photos I took of her fence?
Hi Kate, thanks for your comment. How would you like to be credited? I have links leading to your piece and your name is in the piece as well. Thanks so much, the response has been marvelous, so many knitters are delighted with Anne’s beautiful work and your lovely photos make it all the more enjoyable. Kind regards, Danielle

you might consider saying “Kate Davies, the photographer, …” in the reference to her – one has to click on the hyperlink to realize she’s a photographer – I warrant not everyone will do that. I had not, and probably would not have, until I read her comment.

Watched an article on TV on the Shekand Islands the other day. Lady being interviewed was knitting as fast as she was talking. Was awesome to watch.

Wowww… It looks amazing…. Is there any source from where I can learn to do this? I’m new to knitting…
Also, what kind of needles do we use for this kind of knitting?
