Tatting From Burda book
Not as easy or straight-forward as it seems, this little pattern had me wondering how to get those outer rings tamed. It took three times to realize the pattern did not work and I had to increase the stitch count by10 ds per ring, making the final count a massive 42 ds per ring! Whew! Lots of anxiety closing them up! They ended up all fine, even the one that decided to become bent for her photo shoot!
I am so pleased with the result that I may at some later time re-tat this. Unfortunately, I have no idea who designed this, as I printed it from the Internet somewhere ages ago and don’t know where I found it. Anyone?
Next, I have made progress on the edging; I will have enough thread.
It would not have been sufficient had I had continued with Robin’s pretty border design, so it is auspicious that I decided to switch patterns. All is good - for a much-needed change from the grumbling. That means no trucker-talk, Sherry! : ))
