Wasting Thread?

Not really. I won't learn anything if I'm not prepared to experiment and throw away the failures! Ninetta updated a Therese de Dillmont pattern by using modern techniques to achieve the same effect. She used it to tat a bookmark. Muskaan has augmented Ninetta's work by creating two tutorials to illustrate two different ways to achieve the effect. The first one is here and the second here. As you can see, I didn't grasp the concept immediately! Yesterday I went to an information day to hear the requirements for next year's competition articles, so I didn't work on this, but I'll get back to it and hopefully make some progress.

  1. I used to worry about wasting thread... until I accumulated more than any sane person should have on hand! I'm sure you'll master this technique.

    1. :-) you're right, I suffer from a condition called stash exceeds life expectancy, and using up some thread can only be a good thing!

  4. I don't worry so much about wasting thread - it's the precious time I hate losing! But, experimenting is so essential to progress.
