Tatting Some "Curds and Whey"


I've been leaving bits of Oliver Twists thread on my shuttle as I've finished each Stumpy motif, and my shuttle was getting a little full! I decided to try "Curds and Whey" from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. As simple as this pattern is, I manage to make mistakes every time I try it.

One advantage to tatting with thread as fine as the Oliver Twists, is that it's very difficult to see my mistakes! ; )

  2. What size is that thread Diane? The finer the tatting the more I love it! You go girl!

  3. I love that pattern so much; it is gorgeous and one of my favorites. But you are right, it is surprisingly tricky. That is also true of most of Mary's patterns. Something about the way she thought, maybe? Not that I would change a single thing about the way she thought; the patterns that resulted are amazing.

  4. That pastel colorway is perfect for such a frothy-looking pattern, and nope, I don't see any mistakes. That would make a nice little bookmark.

  6. I just used "Curds and Whey" for some earrings! I found that it's really easy to not join to the correct spot.

  9. I do that to empty my shuttles, too. It does look so pretty in that cotton, does it tat up like Gütermann?
