From the Knitty article:
Below you’ll find three superlative examples by the gloriously-named Mademoiselle Eléonore Riego de la Branchardière. Mademoiselle R. de B. was an early knitting and crochet rock star, with a string of wildly popular pattern books and a gold medal for crochet at the Great Exhibition of 1851. She was – or so her biographer claimed – the child of a displaced French nobleman and an Irish aristocrat; and there is certainly something in her laces that could be seen as the combination of French elegance with Irish imagination. They are also, once one has worked the bugs out them, a hell of a lot of fun to knit.
