Eborall Enigma

LATER... (fourth try!)


Jane has given us a lovely pattern, (thank you, Jane) which I could not wait to try with some great thread I just received from Marilee - thank you, Marilee!

At first I tried the pattern - Twirly - 6 sides - with a #80 thread, the green and orange one. However, I am having some dissatisfaction using the skinny threads and currently seem to prefer at least a #60.

Plus, it is ridiculous to try a pattern that confounds my directional understanding using such a fine thread. So, I picked up the blue #20 and matched it with a #30 for the contrast.

So, it seems that I am getting the hang of it. We shall see.


  1. I can't wait to see how gorgeous that turns out!!!

  2. Fox,
    tatting quietly, take your time and everything will be fine :)
    I keep my fingers crossed!

  3. Jane's patterns are always fun and sometimes enigmatic.
    I have been away from a computer for the past 3 days, just now doing a bit(read that as a lot) of catchup.
