I have wanted to try this Tina Frauberger pattern for a while and this seemed a perfect time to do so, since I started the Mystery Doily again and so have little to show.
The good news is that the new work is much improved, but I have not got to joining the round yet... we shall see.
In what seems another person’s life, I did a lot of knitting and crocheting. That was my job and my hobby; I taught, sold, stitched and designed. Now, I have absolutely no desire to be near any of it.
The knitting stuff is long gone - library, tools wool - everything. Same with the crochet tools, books and stash, EXCEPT for my beloved Profi hooks. They are rather expensive for a crochet hook and my absolute favourites, so I could not bear to part with them.
Lucky I kept them, for I will be needing them and I will tell you why in the next post.
In the meantime, here is a tiny sampling of my previous life, before I was soundly struck by the tatting cupid. : ))
