An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Totally agree with you !
I admire your ability to eyeball the length! I would have to use the paper. When I eyeball the length, each piece gets a little bit longer and soon it is out of control!
I like to eyeball when I can too. There is a couple in the book that you just got to measure. I love these patterns and the single threads showing. You work is beautiful!
Folded paper! Now that's very clever. It looks like it would be very easy to use, I think motif on the right looks somewhat better than the one on the left. Worth it?
I usually eyeball lengths, too. I don't often do bare spaces though. Your motifs look good.
I try to eyeball the length do prefer that to having something getting in the way while I measure the lengths. Both motifs are lovelyMargaret
You did fabulous on both!!! :)
The "bare thread space tool" is also nice for lots of bare thread space motifs.
I'd eyeball too - just like I do with picots. I've never seen the point of gauges - not in the past 60 years although I did use one once and it slowed me down so much it got boring!!!
They look fabulous!I have never had enough patience to make these sort of "gauged" motifs.
I like to eyeball when I can. I find that I cannot always work well with a gauge so lots of room for improvement for me. Your folded paper gauge is a great idea too bad it slowed you down.
What did I tell you? You see, you are getting the hang of it - fast!Love what you are doing. Brilliant to just work through the book. Plus, unlike our tatting friend Maureen, I love bare threads!
