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

Motif 12 is trickier than it looks. The one on the left is my first attempt. I blocked it into submission, but the centre is way overcrowded. Take two on the right is not perfect, but a lot better.
A word on the thread I'm using: in November last year, I dyed a lot of small skeins, trying to get the right colour for a pair of earrings, as you can read here. I was trying out different proportions of the same dyes, so the resulting colours are related and go well together. They work well for these small, multicolour motifs, I think.
