#22 Motif Challenge
Yarnplayer's "Celery" HDT . and Milford #40
I am beguiled by the old patterns. Suddenly, I am truly smitten. Perhaps, once one begins to understand the way they are written, it is just a natural progression to trying them out and succumbing to their charm! Whatever. I like them a lot!
That is not to say that they don't drive me right up the wall. This one was awful for me to tat - just dreadful. I just could not get it right. Worth it in the long run, but I cannot believe how women tatted yards and yards of this stuff... How did they do it? This one took HOURS, and this is all I have to show for all that time.
By the way, it occurred to me this afternoon, that a 'glass mat' is a small mat to put under a glass! Is this correct? I have wondered for a long time why it was called a glass mat, and I am so dyslexic and literal, that sometimes the oddest things elude me! Set me straight, someone!
P.S. This pattern looks like a light switch cover!
