Picot Poem

This is the beginning of a Karey Solomon pattern from her new doily publication. It should not have been so difficult. For the life of me, I do not know how I get so snagged on such simple directions... but I do!

Finally, I just followed what was written and I did that three part bit correctly... I think I did, at any rate!

I have added the Elizabeth pattern to my Etsy shop. 
Thank you  Ladytats, for test -tatting and help with the editing. 


  1. Hi Fox,

    Well I love your poem, and all I can say is don't tat so late into the night, it will go wrong.
    I look forward to seeing the finished doily,
    I will go and have a look in your esty shop and see Elizabeth pattern, Love to Gian.

    1. Hi, Margaret,
      it is SUCH a bad habit! I must learn to turn out the light earlier...
      Fox : )

  2. LOL! Love the poem. This has been known to happen to me also, though sometimes I don't have the excuse of it being late at night... Looking forward to seeing it finished.

  3. Another doily? Crazy woman. I love the colors so far!!

    and the poetry.

  4. Sounds like someone needed sleep far into the night instead of tatting. :D

  5. I'm bad at putting my tatting down too! The evenings are always too short... I keep thinking "just a few more stitches..."!

  6. That's so true, Fox! Just one more ring, or one more chain......

  7. Hee hee hee! Loved your little poem! Looks like you have done some blog design updating! Like it! ! ! Great fonts!

  8. Thank you Fox. I enjoy tatting your patterns. I am hoping tomorrow night to have the time to post.
    It is an enjoyable pattern.

  9. I love your sense of humor - this poem is great and so true: each craftsman is doing like that and then have to work hard twice to fix something :)

  10. Thanks for the great comments, Tatters!
    Fox : )
