I make a good amount of Binche, and I originally used a "voodoo board". Now I prefer circling the pinhole marks on the diagram with a small pencil circle, and sometimes I lightly draw a swirly circle or an asterisk at a special stitch, like the next stitch to-do when I'm putting it all away (instead of a sticky arrow), so when I take it out agai, I know where to start.
This way if I have to un-lace because of a mistake, I just erase the light pencil marks, and there isn't anything permanent on the diagram like actual pin holes. When I used the pins and voodoo board, the pinholes would confuse me if the pins fell out of the board, etc. Maybe someone will find this helpful-- Beth Harpell on a gorgeous breezy and sunny day in New Jersey Virginia "Beth" Harpell Historic Property Specialist www.HistoricHouseHunter.com 973-650-1637 Cell 973-770-7777 Office RE/MAX House Values 101 Landing Road Roxbury, NJ 07850 RE/MAX 100% Club & NJAR Circle of Excellence - To unsubscribe send email to majord...@arachne.com containing the line: unsubscribe lace y...@address.here.
