24 Motif Challenge
I surprised myself while tatting this motif; I thought I would have a lot of trouble with it. After all, it is one of Iris Niebach's, and I usually have a bit of a directional challenge with her patterns. However, this one was not too bad at all! I'm all for progress in that realm!
Actually I did go the wrong way a number of times and had to ...what... retat; untat; frog; retrotat; tonk... what did we all have to say about that? I'll stick to retat, a word that I do not think was even part of the vote (interesting post, here)!
The HDT is pretty to look at - an interesting colourway - and I would like to try it in a finer thread.
Krystle sent a big skein of this colourway in another thread; I will compare it to this one and report. The next lot is not a regular tatting thread - more of a fine, three ply crochet cotton.
Now, I think I will try to replicate the necklace that Suneeti showed me that she made for her mom using beads and split rings....
P.S. For a better example of what this should look like, and what I aspire to, see IsDihara's blog!
