I'm a big fan of Irish motifs. Always delicate and beautiful.

Despite the authors explanation, these projects arent really what I think of as Irish crochet patterns. Inspired by all things Irish, yes. Cluny knots, no. Never the less, Ive worked a few of these delightful projects and have spotted a few more I want to make (those lace doilies are stellar). Ive bookmarked this page so I can explore it a bit more.
