Tatting!

Last Thursday at the Knit & Crochet Show, I took a class on tatting* with Susan Lowman. I’m really enjoying this new craft (and new use for all the crochet thread I’ve stockpiled over the years).

It took about 4 class hours for me to learn to tat and complete this butterfly.tatted butterfly

Since then I’ve played around with some motifs from the book, New Tatting: Modern Lace Motifs and Projects , and I’m working on making myself a bookmark.

I obviously need practice to get my stitches more even, but I’m having fun along the way :-)

*I spent the whole class sitting next to fellow designer Linda Dean. She and I had a blast, and she was wearing one of her designs that I tech edited.
