An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
I tatted the yellow round 4 separately, threaded it through round 3 and then held it in place with round 5. When I was working on the prototype, I found it very irritating that the yellow bit I hadn't yet worked on kept slipping. I thought of pinning it in place, but I didn't want to stick pins into the tatting. The solution was to thread a piece of cotton yarn through the rings to keep then in place. The thread could easily be removed as I worked. Yes, it looks horrible, but it worked fine.
