An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Friday, May 20, 2016
In knitting, a big deal is made of tension - if you don't knit to the same tension as the designer, the garment might not work. Every pattern tells you to test your tension before you begin. In tatting, tension is seldom mentioned. Yet it can affect the appearance of the work and sometimes whether elements will join smoothly. This motif works fine, but my tighter tension makes it look a little different to the original picture. Or perhaps it's just that I made my picots smaller than the original.
