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.

    Lindsey,
    You did an amazing job on your tatted butterfly! And your tatted bookmarks are coming along great! Thanks so much for taking my shuttle tatting class. I’m thrilled that you took to it so quickly! I look forward to seeing more tatting from you!

    Agree 100%. My family of four just completed our first ever group tour, and it was with Trafalgar. It was absolutely fantastic. We can’t wait to go on our next one. I’m thinking “Best of Germany”, or Croatia or Turkey or ANYWHERE. Susie Nelles showed us how a tour director takes all the pain, stress, and trouble away. Thanks so much,Marise AbbottPerth, Australia
