Lessons in Hairpin Lace

I've joined yet another CAL at crochetville, to create something in hairpin lace.

And here's a shot of it on my loom. I have absolutely no idea if I'm even doing this properly, but I was able to work up one strip of 300 loops (on each side), and pulled out some patterns I have.

There is a lovely lace stole, called Woman's Stole, from the Bates Book 17600, Discover the Excitement of Hairpin Lace - Beginners and Advanced Designs (from the 70s - unsure of publication date).

The stole pattern takes 5 strips of 300, and I will let you know if it turns out!
