Black is Done

    Now the black rounds are done. I don't really mind working black, but it can be difficult to see what you are doing, especially in smaller threads. Even in a size 20 it can be hard to see. In this size 80, well, I mostly just have to work by feel. At least, for now, the black size 80 is done. I had to pin it out. It won't look too bad.
    Next up is supposed to be a beige but I am going to substitute another color for it. I am going to have to try the round and see what works. A Lizbeth 699, Harvest Gold. Now that I have it in hand, it looks to have a greenish tint but we shall see.
    The pattern is not really clear here and I hope what I think it says works OK. To tell the truth, it should. What is happening is I cannot tell if part of it is chain or bare thread. I think it is bare thread. I like doing a bit of that type tatting and I really like mignonette so I will try that first. If it works, that is what it will be.


  1. Looking good so far, I can't do black, even size 20 my eye is not good enough in winter light.

  2. Looks fantastic. So it'll have a black centre and then other colours? I look forward to seeing the next part.

  3. Tim this is fascinating, I would love to take a peak at this pattern sounds like a fun challenge and great you are preparing to figure this out, love the tatting so far have a great day😄
