I'm starting to settle into a routine at school, if not at home, so I decided to take some time to finish my latest Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. The thread is Omega, and I like the way this turned out, even though it's not exactly what I envisioned.
I'm usually pretty good about winding off the correct amount of thread to finish a Spinning Wheel, but this time I goofed! I wound up using the shoelace trick after every ring and chain for the last two spokes. It looks okay, but I am tempted to rewind my shuttles and make another one with this thread so that I can get the effect that I think I would get... or maybe I'll work on something else. :-)
