More, more, more

I've been doing more socks, more crochet doilies and more tatting.

I actually haven't been doing too much because work has been so intense lately.  By the time I get home, I literally have no energy to do anything but stare at the wall and crochet.  So I've done a lot of crochet.  I've now completed 8 crochet doilies in the last 3 weeks.  It's been so therapeutic.  Before they go, I'll try to get a photo of the whole line-up.

Saturday I got the newest issue of PieceWork magazine and was so thrilled to see a lace issue.  There was knitted lace and bobbin lace and, yes, tatted lace. 










I just had to try it out.












Sweet.

I messed up on part of it but now that I understand how the pattern works, I'm going to cut it and start fresh.  I've never seen anything like this, I think it has such an Audrey Hepburn sort of look to it.  Maybe that's just the black and white thing but I do like it.

I meant to post about this earlier - just refer to previous discussion about work - but I wanted to show you the finished product.

Congrats on learning to tat! Everyone new tatter I've come across swears by that Learning to Tat DVD you used. I think that edging would look great attached to a dresser scarf.
