An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I've done pearl tatting before, but it wasn't until I saw Iris Niebach's recent post that I realised it could be used for more than a narrow braid. Rings can be thrown off the braid in both directions. I've just seen that Gunhild has been inspired by Iris too. Directions for doing pearl tatting can be found on Jane Eborall's technique page here. I made a loop at the beginning of the centre thread on the motif above, so that I could close it like a Self closing mock ring.
