Miroslava lives in Ukraine. Crochet was her hobby, until it became a full time work. She calls her technique Guipure crochet. She is very kind and shares her knowledge with other crochet lovers.

  1. Какие шедевры она создает! Настоящие музейные экспонаты. Я тоже пыталась ирландию вязать, но мой жилет очень плохо носится. Ругаю себя, что не связала одним цветом. Лучше бы светленькую... Немного разочаровалась я в ирландии. Я почти месяц вязала и не ношу... Но смотрю на работы Мирославы и хочется еще раз попробовать. Сам процесс работы меня увлек. Возможно, воротник небольшой свяжу.

    Спасибо за пост, Наталия. А у Вас есть ирландские планы?

  2. I have one project in process (white summer wrap for a beach) but I've been ripping it off and starting again for a while. Something it's just wrong and I want it perfect. It's been on the floor in my living room for quite a month or so. Shame on me!!! I need an inspiration on this one.
    Also I want to make a wool scarf in pale green -pink-white. Something in the mood of blooming apple - cherry tree.

  3. Удачи! Ирландия требует усидчивости, но, главное, вдохновения. Пусть оно Вас не покидает.

    1. Hi Tammi,
      I guess if you google Irish Crochet, you might find something.
      Actually, all you need to get some charts for motives and learn how to make a net to connect them, which you can find on youtube. The rest is your imagination. I'll try to find some useful links for you.
