Master RPLAL list for 2012

Notice the new header.  That is a hint of some of the future RPLAL that will happen this year.  I see January, February, June, October and  November and just some I am doing for me and not the tutorials.  There are others for those months that I have not shown yet but the entire year is planned. I may add more as the year goes on but this is how i t stands so far.
2012 blog header

I am hoping having this be the first post of the first month in 2012 will make it easy for people to find it for future reference.

This is the main post for the series of tutorial I will be doing all year long.  I will update it after every new post and add the links.  And there will be photos added so you can have a visual reference on the right side of the post of what each project looks like.
  1. RPL: Romanian Point Lace
  2. RPLAL:  Romanian Point Lace along meaning a lot of people are working on this at the same time and there are forums to ask your questions on as well as here
  3. solid: no fabric in the middle all filling stitches and cord.
  4. tile:  means it is square probably and will work well for making larger items by making many of them and tiling them together like granny squares

If I do not write solid on a doily it means it has a fabric center for you to embroider on and I will not be going over that area as that is for you to decide what you want to do there.  Here is the list for the next 12 months and what will be taught.

Previous tutorials that might be useful during the year
  1. making cord video
  2. single and long chain rings
  3. 3 ring groupings
  4. transferring pattern
  5. basting
  6. Unraveling cord and sewing to another cord
  7. joining ends of cords together video
  8.  removing lace from pattern  video ( sorry both my phone and door bell rang during it
  9. removing basting threads from lace video
Groups to help you on the way

  • Ravelry group  ( this is where the RPLAL are actually being hosted with questions and answers) 
  • Flicker Group where most of these photos and other peoples photos are hosted great eye candy
here is 2011 master list (I know it was only one month but there is useful information there)

List of basic supplies needed for these
  • size 10 thread for cord
  • rubber bands to wrap around cord while making it to help keep it from tangling
  • knitters safety pin to put through the last stitch on cord when not working on it so it doesn't pull out
  • size 5 thru size 10 crochet hook which ever works best for you to make the cord with  ( it all depends on your tension)
    •  here is what I use but use what works best for you  (I like my cords tight and very neat and with out as much stretch as the size 5 gives)
      • size 10 hook with size 10 thread
      • size 12 hook with size 20 thread
      • size 14 hook with size 30 thread
      • size 16 hook ( special order these from Lacis in Berkly they are handmade) for threads small than size 30
  • muslin for the pattern to be transferred too
  • tapestry needle for filling stitches
  • sharp sewing needle for basting 
  • sewing thread for basting
  • cabone rings if you are doing one with rings if not never mind
  • can fill with any of the following size 10 , 20 or 30 crochet thread you can actually fill with what ever size thread you want these are just the usual
  • patterns down-loadable from this post ( look below for the words "download now")
  • embroidery hoop if you use such things (bigger than the pattern)
  • clear contact paper to cover pattern if you still want ridged but don't want to use a hoop 
  • thimble if you are use to using such a thing in your embroidery 
  • scissors
