I am trying to get everything together for the move and it would help greatly to move some more thread. I'm so scared that they are going to get lost in the move somehow. Hopefully I'm just being paranoid though. :o)
So, when I started this doily of Livi's , I couldn't be bothered to actually look at the original pattern. I mean, if Tatting with a 4 Square, doesn't have patterns, and I've already tatted one of the pieces... then why look at the original picture again, right?
So, I just looked on to doily I did last year for reference. That is, until I got further on this one than I did the last one. Then I broke out the book to make sure there weren't extra stitches slipped in that I had forgotten.
I flipped through the book, didn't see the pattern. Flipped back through... still on doily that looked like mine. At the point I was very puzzled. Then I looked at the first doily in the book and suddenly remembered what had happened!
Last year, I wanted to make this doily and I really liked the triangles that were created with the negative space. But those triangles were added until like row 15. And, I was NOT going to tat 15 rows.
This is really all well and good except that Livi wants the doily to be bigger... so I will just keep on, making educated guesses how and where to add extra stitches.
Or maybe I'll come up with something different all together.... who knows!
