Here we go again:
This is Milford yellow, #40,
tatted in Karey Solomon's 'Laurel' pattern,
found in her border booklet.
I like it.
Remember my experiment with hand positions? Wrapping the thread around my hand, over the whole hand or stopping at the fourth finger? Well, I have a success story tell you. : )
Muscle memory has kicked in for the most part. What did that take - maybe a couple of weeks at most of constant vigilance to my hand position?
It is working now, as I seldom have to re-wrap the thread and it is automatically positioning itself around my entire hand. I think my tatting is looking better and stitches seem tighter, more consistent. Also, having the hook of the shuttle facing the right way has definitely helped immeasurably. Thanks, Frivole!
Born a Taurean, I seem to have that Pit-Bullean nature that will just will not let go.
