Well, here it is... round 4 completed! I wasn't very happy with round 3... it looked too close to round 2. Now I know why... my chains are 6 stitches too long, with 2 too many picots. I'm not going to go back and fix it. I'll just make sure I tat the design correctly next time. I was going to send this to one of my blogging buddies as a thank-you gift, but I just can't send it off with such a glaring mistake! ; )
The doily is now about 5" in diameter. The largest doily, called the Centerpiece is 14 rounds. I'm not sure if I have enough thread in this color to complete all 14 rounds. The Placemat is rounds 1-7, with round 14 as the finishing round. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to finish that far. I really like the way this is coming together, and it is really simple!
I probably won't get to tat any more today. I really have to get some groceries in, and my daughter Alison is coming to spend the night with Eva and Aidan. We have all sorts of things planned... look through jewelry making books, choose beads for projects. learn to spin with a drop spindle, warp my loom, watch movies... I don't think we'll get it all done, but we'll have fun trying!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
