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

Thanks very much to everyone who gave me advice yesterday on motif 28. I had another go. The first step was to make sure that the first round lay flat. I increased the picot size and shortened the chains from 8 ds to 6 ds. Right. On the second round, I took muskaan's advice and used lock joins instead of Teiko Fujito's 'outer thread joining method'. I was careful not to snug the lock join up too tightly. Much better. Muskaan has done a lot of work on different types of joins, The lock join does give a colour blip, but that's much less of a problem than a ruffled motif.
