Orsi said something interesting and it has caused me re-evaluate something I stated a few days ago. I used the word 'bored,' but in fact I think that might be wrong. Orsi's comment was:
I don't get bored with repetition, but I am really impatient. I can't understand, why things aren't done in the minute.I think that may be more to the point, as I definitely love the process of tatting and the rhythm I find I get into. It is almost meditative - no - it IS meditative.
All right, maybe not bored, however, I am a bit disgruntled when I pick up this piece, as there is still quite a lot of tatting to do. Disgruntled works for me!
Being a tad worried about getting the white dirty, I tried putting the tatted bit in a sandwhich bag, leaving just the part I am working on sticking out.
Drove me crazy! Plus, it seemed heavier that way; it seemed that being all folded up gave the thread more mass. And the plastic bag felt awful. What do you do to keep tatting clean?
Because I tend to tat around meal hours, I have to be very careful that there is none of my repast on any digits!
