Teiko Fujito, that is. Her patterns are delightful and usually drive me round the bend, but this went so well that I was able to follow up quickly with one from Suzanne Schwenke, which unfortunately resulted in some severe hair-pulling.
This is the end of that vintage thread from Ladytats. It was #80 or so, and very crisp - a joy to work with, albeit very skinny. I loved the colour.
Remember that injury a few posts back? The bandage and salve post? Well, here is what REALLY happened. I did have a mishap with my hook, but that happened a few weeks ago and was not worth mentioning.
What was a problem was that it did not heal well and I realized it felt as if there were a splinter in the wound and that was what was hurting, not the puncture itself.
Not being one to seek medical advice, when I imagine I can effect *small* cures, I got a pin ... and guess what? I pulled thread fibres out of my finger! The pain stopped as soon as the tweezers had done their work. Anyone else had that happen? Ah, the perils of the tat.
