In order to fulfill my desire to tat SOMETHING while awaiting the tardy delivery of DMC Perle for the Jan Stawasz Monster Doily, I paid a visit to the local Crochet Shop the other day to get some Finca for Renulek's new collar pattern.
I always complain about this thread, but hey! After Lizbeth, anything would be a lovely thread! : ))
I just finished the second row and am pleased to be done with the beads, which are difficult to get onto the rather soft and fibrous thread, but I do like the colour of the beads. As soon as I saw the pattern, I knew I wanted to use these two colours of teal.
The third row has been posted for this collar pattern on Renukek's blog, so off I go to begin it.
Notice the lovely teal LaCossette shuttle? Perfect Match. :)
The amazing Diane's package arrived! I had asked her for a shuttle like the ones she gives to her students, so I could begin to teach The Boss to tat. I also asked for a sample of fat thread as I have none, nor did I have a big shuttle. You guys know me - get rid of everything!!!
This arrived in the post:
