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

The Semicircle Test
This is motif 16. I added teeny tiny picots just up from the base of the rings in the centre round, to make the centre more stable. I did half of the second round and then looked at it carefully to make sure I'd gone half way round the circle:
Mmm, no. If I'd carried on, there's no way the round would've lain flat. So I snipped the round off and started again, making the picots between the big rings longer - making them 13 mm long, to be exact.
Check again after half the round - better. That saved me a bit of tatting. I see I have fudged a little bit with the bare spaces - the long thread to complete the round really jumps out at you from the top picture.
