I've never tatted a doily this large before. Progress is slow! It doesn't help that I've had to untat several times. The pattern is perfectly straightforward, but it clearly needs slightly more concentration than I've been giving it.
Phyllis said that her day 5 of LadyShuttleMake
r's tat it and see looked the same as mine, so I carried on with day 6. But I really think I have gone wrong somewhere. In the diagram, the work curves back towards the 'daisy', whereas mine heads straight out from the daisy. I wasn't going to put a picture, but perhaps I had better show exactly what I mean:
I think I'll see how other people's work looks after day 6 before I take the plunge and start again!
wow, I have been out of town and this doily is looking so great what is it measuring now? I this this mystery tatting is going to slow it's killing me the suspense :)ReplyDelete
Good question - about 45 cm or 171/2 inches across. I think it's going to be too big for the table I was visualising it on, but I really like the outer row, so I'll keep going! Yes, that's the excitement of the tat it and see.ReplyDelete
The TIAS mine curls at the point where you start day five, or have I got it wrong, it's on my blog, and on Sherrys TIAS blog. If you want to have a look.ReplyDelete
Thanks, that's what I suspected! I'm off to check the blog now.Delete
your doily looks good I like the colors. I like Fox's too. As for the TIAS, maybe your joining picots are too big?ReplyDelete
The pattern doesn't specify 'very small picots'. I think my problem is more to do with the direction the tatting is going. I think I might have missed a 'turn work' or something like that.Delete
Your doily is so inspiring!!! :)ReplyDelete
