Anne Eunson Loves Lace So She Knit Herself a Garden Fence and It Looks Gorgeous

Anne Eunson Loves Lace So She Knit Herself a Garden Fence and It Looks Gorgeous

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!

    • 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.
