I could have had a lot more tatted, but I forgot that pesky section of chain again! This time I chose to retro-tat the five rings and corresponding chains. Of course that took a little while, but I didn't feel like snipping and rejoining thread this time. Maybe I'll pay more attention for the rest of the round!
I'm finally back to the point where I was when Carollyn saw my mistake, and I'm feeling pretty good about how this round is going. I have a feeling it's going to take a while, but I don't mind. I really like this round!
I forgot to post my progress on Jane's TIAS yesterday. At this point, I think it looks like needle nose pliers!
I didn't tat much today, but I did manage to fix yesterday's mistake. That makes me very happy!
I also finished the brown scarf that's been on the loom for over a week. I like the way it turned out, but I can't say that I enjoy weaving with super bulky yarn. It was an experiment, and now I know how the super bulky looks when woven.
So, how did I spend my day? Catching up... grocery shopping, reorganizing kitchen cabinets, laundry... all the little mundane things that must be done. It's funny, though... I found it very relaxing!
The first pattern repeat went just fine, so I confidently started the second pattern repeat. To my dismay, I realized that I forgot a picot and 5 ds, so there was nothing to join to. I'm not very far along, so guess what? It will be snip, snip, snip, snip, snip, snip, start over. I sure am glad this happened at the beginning of the round!
Although my Internet connection was very slow this morning, I did manage to finish Day 7 of Jane's TIAS. I have absolutely no idea what this could be!
That's how big the Monster Doily is after only six rounds. I can't believe there are 17 rounds to this doily. I think I'm going to have to clean the dining room table off so that I can keep taking pictures!
I'm an elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to five. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. If I quit my job today, I'd never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
