When you get to the ninth row, you will tat a floating ring. I found it looks way better to use a Catherine Wheel join to continue the second part of the chain.
Also, the ring is better constructed if you add a half ds and post the shuttle, thus preventing the ring from turning in on itself upon closing.
You can see - count in 5 - where I made a fatal error and had to remove several elements. Still in all, it is a lovely piece and I love the colour of the thread and beads.
There has been entirely too much cutting. You really must be focussed on this row. Unfortunately James Spader, in The Blacklist, has been captivating much too much of. My attention during the evenings when I tat!
I am fearing running out of thread on the new ball of thread, as I had to cut so much.
Now - RANT!
LIZBETH THREAD SUCKS! I had forgotten how I loathe this thread. It is passable in #80, but in the larger sizes it splits, has slubs and was actually broken at one point, deep into the last ball. I am, once again, truly disgusted.
End of Rant
I won't mention it again - until the next defective ball...
