Making Progress

 I started the Victorian Trellis Doily (as Frivole dubbed it) on Saturday. I'm making good progress, it's going along more quickly than I expected. That may be because it uses only chains. The shuttle thread lasts a very long time, there's no refilling the bobbin or joining in new threads. And no altering the length of the working thread between rings and chains. The last row looks a bit adrift, but that will be rectified on the next row.

  1. Looks great! It would make a refined collar too.

  2. It looks like you're making very fast progress! I think I'd like to tat that pattern in a soft green. It may take some time to find where the thread is buried in my sewing room.

  3. Wow, I'd say you've made progress! Well done! :) I really like how this looks, and it looks like it uses one of my favorites, the Josephine chain! I can't wait for the next row! :)

  6. It's looking great Jane! I'm glad my explanations are proving helpful as I was finding the wording in the pattern somewhat confusing. I like this pattern a lot and ever since making the doily have been thinking what a nice collar it would make too. I also think it's great how it's nearly all chains so you hardly ever need to refill your shuttle.

  7. That is beautiful! It looks very frilly - pronounced "difficult" ;) - but you are making it look easy as you progress so quickly!
