On a positive note, I finally have finished a Christmas present. This one is Renulek's Spring Napkin 2018. This has really been an interesting tat. Mostly I have had to do it at work, no, not on company time, but I usually arrive about an hour ahead and have coffee and quiet. I also take lunch in my office so I eat, then tat. I started this one in February. Between everything else, I finally got it done yesterday.
I did the first several rounds as continuous tatting, but eventually the pattern got a bit complicated so I had to start individual rounds. On the last round are 48 "points". I used the method I have in my Experiments page for doubled rings. I think it looks better that way. In this photo I have not blocked it yet. I have washed it with Orvus though. It is tatted with Pop-A-Bobbin shuttles using DMC100 and measures about 13" across. I wonder what it would be in size 20?
This doily will go to my niece for Christmas.
