I, on the other hand, am enthralled:
I am running out of buttons, but had a Cabone ring and Jon Yusoff's book, Tatting With Rings. Being hasty, I just glanced at the book and figured out what to do - amazing! - and with a few errors, I managed the ring, improvising as I tatted.
Love it, so I'm going to have to sit down with the istructions and some elusive patience.
