Currently I am adding the third last motif. The thread is really bad and slows me down considerably with all the splitting and knotting. So disappointing. I certainly have thread woes, don’t I!
The cap is more the right size. It is working up quickly and the #20 was the right choice.
I am pleased with it so far, though the baby will probably not be wearing it for about a year, I think!
A few weeks ago I got a letter from my pal Suneeti. She wrote to tell me she had completed her project and I thought it was the lace collar. So I wrote back to her to say how beautiful it was:
It wasn’t till later that day, when I went back to look again and admire her tatting that I saw it: the turquoise beads!
I burst out laughing and realized what I had done. This was MY tatting, sent to her as a gift earlier in the year. She had found an appropriate sweater to sew it to and in the photo her daughter models it to display the collar, now months later, attached.
My face must have been quite a study when the lights finally flickered on!
Thanks, Suneeti, for the lovely photos; the sweater was a most perfect choice. The entertainment provided was also very appreciated. : ))
