Round 10 - Renulek's Spring 2016 Doily

Well it hasn't un-curled itself yet but I haven't done any blocking to it at all yet. Anyone else having the same issue?  I still like how it's coming along.

Heart Doily - Rounds 4 & 5

Found a mistake in round 3 while doing round 5! Yikes! Managed to cut out the offending area and fix it and am satisfied with the results. Better than cutting 2 1/2 rounds all the way back. 

 
 

Started round 6 - joined hearts that are attached to the doily with chains on the final round. There are 20 hearts total. 

I'm practicing front side/back side tatting on this round. I usually tat using the "traditional" method but it does look nicer having a true front side/back side. I guess it's the knitter coming out in me. 

 
 

I'm trying to get in shape for Phase I of Tatters Across Time's Tatting Proficiency Program. I have my packet already but haven't started yet. I'm excited about it! Looking forward to sharpening up my skills. 

A Few Motifs

Three Mary Konior motifs, made with Lizbeth size 20. Motifs 1, 2, and 3 for the 25 Motif Challenge.

Heart Doily - Round 3

Enjoyed this round, although I got on autopilot again and had to retat the chain 8's a few times because I started to make them 8-p-8 like the other chains in the round. Whoops! 

Love the negative space with this variegated thread!

Heart Doily - Round 2

Zoomed through round 2. Nice break after the first round. 

 

Ordered more thread for this so I don't run out. I probably got too much so I guess I'll have to find something else to make with what's remaining. You can never have too much thread!

Heart Doily - Round 1

Finished round 1 of the Heart Doily using my new hand dyed thread in color Summer Trail from Yarnplayer on Etsy. Had to cut/fix a few times because I wasn't paying close enough attention to where I was in the pattern. Round 2 is easy though.
