Ludvigson Lace Lady: It’s perfect for a wedding.Hummer: What is?
Ludvigson Lace Lady: The Lover’s Knot. So romantic.
Hummer: I agree. The stitch is exquisitely dainty! Especially when you use a finer thread!
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Yes. You know, when I was first introduced to the stitch, it was a cape made with a thicker yarn. It was beautiful! But I immediately wondered what a wrap would look like in a size 10 thread. And then I envisioned a birdcage veil, using size 80 thread.
Hummer: Did you try it in size 10 and size 80 threads?
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Yes, I did! And they are in my shop.
Hummer: Oh, and in a myriad of different colors! Or so it seems.
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Well, not that many colors, Hummer! But I did try almost every color in the store!

Hummer: So then, with all those colors used, you must have crocheted a zillion Lover’s Knots! How romantic!
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Well, my crochet hook and I did log a few hours, that’s for sure! Such a dainty stitch. As I already mentioned, it’s perfect for a wedding, and often referred to as the Solomon’s Knot.
Hummer: How’s that!
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Well, King Solomon, in the Bible, is known for love and romance. In Ecclesiastes 4:12, King Solomon states that a three strand cord is not easily broken. Symbolically, this would be the husband, the wife with God. When intertwined, the marriage bond is strong.
Hummer: Oh, I like that! And then I get goose bumps when I imagine myself wrapped up in those Lover’s Knots! How many knots in one of your wraps?
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Good question! I think I can safely say thousands!
Hummer: And in your shop? Zillions!
Ludvigson Lace Lady: Probably!

Lover’s Knot ♡ Champagne
Hummer: How lovely!
Ludvigson Lace Lady: I wholeheartedly agree!
Life is Lovelier with Lace. . .
And in my wholehearted agreement, I admit my pure enjoyment in the matter of crocheting so many Lover’s Knot stitches! It’s been like basking in Solomon’s gardens!
Interestingly, there are also lovely historical connections to the Lover’s Knot. I was specifically intrigued with the tierras of England’s Royalty! One of the favorites is notably the Lover’s Knot design.
Now I am even more persuaded that a Lover’s Knot birdcage veil is to die for!
So if you know someone getting married, looking for some symbolic love to drape themselves in, let me know! There is a lot of love in my shop! Lover’s Knot, that is.
(Hummer: But, don’t limit the Lover’s Knot to a wedding, Ludvigson Lace Lady! We can wear it anywhere!)
Yes, I hear you, Hummer. You want to wrap yourself up in Lover’s Knots for a trip to the beach. Or maybe cuddle up in them around a campfire. We’ll have to see about that!
With spring in the air, Lover’s Knots will follow!
Hooking Knots of Love,
Debbie, the Ludvigson Lace Lady
