Niebling?????

Hey guys,
new to this forum and enjoying exploring.
and definitely stoked to find a venue for dudes who rock with needles.

i'm curious if anyone knows of a good place to find Herbert Niebling lace patterns. i can find some listed online, but they're usually not exactly what i'm looking for, and all i can find to pique my interest are some out-of-focus pictures of tableclothes... if the resolution were better, i might venture figuring out the pattern on my own, but alas...

http://www.angelfire.com/on2/fwlaceknitter/ has pictures of a couple of the patterns i'm looking for -- eichenlaub and paeonies....

any suggestions? anyone with free patterns gets a voucher for free beer on me when you visit san diego.

oakleaves = frosted

oakleaves = frosted fern?

odd, i just realized that the pattern i've been looking for under the name "eichenlaub" (translates to "oakleaves") is the same thing as "frosted fern", just a couple extra thousand rows so its a tablecloth instead of a doily.... so can anyone explain why the frosted fern pattern has acorns on it?

thanks for the suggestions guys. and for the links.

yea, i just got my invite to ravelry. i'm on there under the same name now.

The ferns are growing under

The ferns are growing under an oak tree, of course! So when they become frosted, then you can see the acorns that have fallen not far from the tree.

You might want to check also

You might want to check also for "peonies" - many people for some reason refer to this pattern using the english spelling.

Chris:
Are you a member of ravelry.com yet? If you are login and go to the patterns page, then search Niebling. The patterns that come up (and there are dozens) tell you where each is published. then it's off to ebay or similar to find a lot of them.

www.lacis.com has several books with Nieblings for sale, there is also the NieblingLaceKnitters yahoo group

The Lacis Site is a bit convoluted:
(1)click Online Shopping
(2) click All Products
(3) Scroll down to Books, and click 'Needlework Techniques'
(4) Scroll down to Knitting, and Click 'Lace'

Once the page loads, use your browsers seacrh fuction to locate the Nieblings

Good Luck
