So, next week, when I get a filling, (ugh) I will give him a book that I enjoyed that I think he might like as well, and I had the thought to tat a simple Rosemary Peel bookmark to put in the book.
I never did hear if the black one I tatted a couple of weeks ago was enjoyed by its male recipient, so this is another gamble. It has a hefty feel. Masculine enough?
That filling better not hurt...
The burgundy thread is silk from Krystledawne
and the sparkly - Altin Basak, from Suneeti.
I was not pleased with this the first time I tatted it and had a lot of trouble finishing the pattern - as usual. I get so turned around ... At any rate, the pink one came out to my satisfaction, with far fewer mistakes.
Sometimes I have to leave the beads alone and concentrate on the pattern which I find does become distorted to a certain extent when you add the beads. The heavier thread also made this one easier to tat.
It is a Susanne Schwenke pattern.
The thread is Altin Basak, #50, also from Suneeti, as were the gold beads.
