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

Of Skipping Ropes and Fish
I thought I'd start another curds and whey lace as a 'handbag project', but when I was looking in the book, Tatting with Visual Patterns, for the pattern, I came across Mary Konior's skipping ropes edging and decided I'd work that one instead. I scribbled a copy of the diagram so that I can take it with me instead of carrying the whole book. The pattern is worked entirely in chains, so that one shuttle full of thread should go a long way. The thread is a charity shop find, I don't know what brand it is, but the colour is mink, subtly variegated.
I also wound thread for Carollyn's fishy tat along, which is here. It's a small project, the perfect diversion from my crochet.
