I created another design element

That’s how I’m looking at it. In the cold hard light of day, it’s a mistake:

Musicians who start playing a piece in one key with their brain still in the previous key can relate.

I’m working a snowflake while keeping at the insertion. The rings in the snowflake are R: 4 – 4 – 4 – 4 . The small rings in the insertion are R: 4 – 4 – 1 – 4 – 4 . I did manage to make all 4 picots the correct length, but I put 4 DS in the center section instead of 1 DS. Sigh. I’m too far along to take it out. I’m counting on the pass along the other edge pulling things enough into shape that when I sew the tatting onto the blouse, all will be adjusted. I hope….

So, instead of just I – IV – V – I , I’ll put that extra vi chord in.


  1. The insertion is looking Good and won't require any major readjustment ...
    I've been reading your lovely posts, but haven't been able to leave a comment every time. Keep them coming :-))

    1. Thank you Muskaan. I find posting twice a week just the right amount of push I need to keep focused. I enjoy your very detailed blog posts. Keep them coming!
