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

I was a bit dubious when I first read about Usha's invention, dot picots, because it involves frequently having to swap shuttles. But in practice it's easy enough to swap shuttles and it's very effective. A dot picot is a 'ring' with just one double stitch, made with the second shuttle. It creates an interesting textured look. I like muskaan's working of Usha's pattern, where the beads echo the dot picots.
