Hey everyone,

Unfortunately, I haven't had much time for tatting lately - though I've still managed to make time to try and find more resources (some of which are upcoming events, and are posted on FaceBook). However, last night I did start a new project, and it looks like this:

I have no idea what it will turn out to be. This project is more of a "challenge myself" vs. following any pattern or what-not. 

The reason it's so challenging? Because I'm working with sewing thread! That's so tiny for my chunky-sausage-stubs-for-fingers!

The reason I'm challenging myself? Because I'm not fond of working with anything finer than size 60. I need to diversify.

 

As you can see, some of the picots have become twisted, which takes away from uniformity, and I almost need magnifiers on top of my bifocals to even see the stitches - BUT, I am going to stick with it, and work just little elements here and there.

There is no pattern to follow, just my own craziness 😀

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. A gentle breeze stirs the wind-chimes, while the happy birds sing their tunes in the gardens. I've got my coffee, laptop, and tatting... what more could I need?

Oh, I almost forgot... I've also started to take up knitting. With the help of YouTube videos, I'm learning... The stitch I decided to try first: Horseshoe Lace. It seems easy enough, and the video I found online - this lady is an excellent teacher (for me)! Her name is Joanne. I'll post my project when I have enough on the needles.

Now I just hope my tension will loosen up soon :-S

squeek-squeek goes the yarn across the knitting needles

    You did an absolutely phonamenel job of demonstrating the stitch transfer! All the other videos out there totally leave that part out! Here’s a question (maybe a video idea?): As you tat and the thread on your left hand gets tighter, how do you most easily and effectively loosen it back up without messing up your work?Thank you so much!♥Anita
