Tatting for January 2 and 3, 2011

I’ve finished round three on the pair of cousin doilies. No pictures at this time; natural light escapes me in the evening. Perhaps next Sunday I’ll have something to show you.

I’ve fiddled around with the fourth round of the friend doily for a couple of days. It’s been ages since I’ve had to do any ring-and-thread tatting, and I finally had to rewatch the relevant part of Learn the Easy Art of Needle Tatting and More to relearn it. Then I had to fiddle around with the front-side part until I had it worked out.

In other tatting news: I started working a vintage pattern yesterday, and all I can say is: What were they thinking? Who would actually want to do that? Perhaps more later.

    I hope there is more later. I want to know why you wonder why they would want to do that. And I’m having a bit of a hard time with the DVD title. It’s so easy that you had to watch it again to remember how to do it!

    Yes, I’ll have to get into the details of that pattern later.

    It really is easy—it’s just that I usually do ring-and-chain tatting, and the technique is slightly different, and I thought I remembered how to do it, but it had been so long.
