Shuttle love

It's no secret that I love my tatting shuttles!

My newest shuttle from Grizzly Mountain Arts arrived last week. I really like these Handi-Wind Shuttles. The screw-in handle makes it easier for me to hold the shuttle while I'm winding it. I also like that Dave puts a little ring on the end of the handle so that it can be worn on a ribbon around my neck. I always know where my handle is when it's time to reload my shuttle!

Today's post brought my newest Pop-A-Bobbin shuttles. I was really hoping that the Spalted Beech shuttle would be available when I visited Jane's shop. Luckily, I visited right after it was listed! The Elm shuttle was too pretty to pass up. I really like working with wood shuttles. The wood feels so warm as I'm tatting... perfect for tired fingers!

I managed two pattern repeats on my shawl today. I do enjoy knitting, but I find that it's getting harder to knit for long periods of time. I guess that it pays to have multiple interests!

I've passed the halfway point on this round of the Jan Stawasz Masterpiece. I guess if I didn't take time to blog I would be able to get a lot more done, but I do enjoy posting my progress. It's a great way to keep me motivated!


  1. Lovely shuttles! Yes, blogging is a good way to keep track and keep on track.

  2. Well, your shuttle collection continues to grow nicely!! :)
    Now that I can see the design in that shawl it looks even more beautiful!! :)
    Great going on your doily!!! :) I have gotten a third of the final round done on my Spring 2014 doily done and have been trying to get another chance to continue.

  4. You are a busy lady! I really look forward to seeing your completed shawl and the Jan Stawasz is looking wonderful - it will be a masterpiece indeed. :-)

  5. Lovely shuttles. The shawl and doily are also looking good.
