So have I used any of the madder yarn yet? Well, yes I have, but not very much. Following the success of the Merrie Lace instalation at Mareel, our new music and cinema venue in Lerwick, one of my daughters came up with this idea for lace lights.

and the same candle lights taken with less light.

2 light shades of madder yarn

2 in darker shades

and then with less light to see their reflection

I made a few as Christmas gifts and now have them for sale. At the moment they are all in madder reds and will all be in lace weight yarns, but more colours will be added as I have them.


  1. These are beautiful! What a great idea. I'm sorry I missed your birthday, I hope it was a lovely day for you!

  2. Lovely! Daughters can have splendid ideas. It helps if they live in inspiring environments.
