If I do not concentrate, this Jan Stawasz pattern will get the better of me. I'm finding it difficult to follow the stitchcounts and cannot get distracted or there are mistakes.
Frivole's finished piece, here, is fabulous and since I've always been enticed by the design, after she posted this I knew it was time to tackle it.

Because I must admit I have - for the second time - given up on the Maranta pattern, I shall also admit to a burgeoning addiction to passively enjoying button tatting. I feel as I imagine Diane might, as she tats away at her growing mountain of Ice Drops.
Here is as far as I got on the pattern; I cut off the last wonky row:
The long chains were once again a complete disaster.
The third pair of socks had been completed and awaits delivery to the young mom and her little one..

Have a look HERE at what Umintsuru was able to accomplish:
That woman can really tat! Beautiful precise work.

Another magic button gift.
She wants blue and green, so...
Also in the works: the last pair in the package of three:
The pattern I employed, as you can see, is one of Frivole's and one
of which I am particularly fond. In pink, I think it is one of my faves.

No more. Life's too short. I really do not like how this is turning out and now, after three attempts to fix those long chains, it's not working. This is only the second pattern that I have completely given up on, the first bring Jane's beautiful African design a few years ago.
In this case, I find I cannot control the tension of the chains and they ended up being different lengths; even a mere millimetre made too much of a difference. The sides looked too uneven.
Sorry Umintsuru! This challenge was supposed to be fun - it definitely is not for me! I am going to cut off the chain rows and see if I can save the centre.
