New stuff!!!

They are HERE!   They are HERE!
New Clover (Japan) tatting shuttles.
They have different hook sizes to accommodate different sized fibers.  

They come with little plastic pieces to protect the hook.  Yes,
they seem to have thought of everything.   Regular shuttle next to them so you can see the size.

 Compare Clover to AERO ---



 
No. 8 (0.90mm) and No. 12 (0.60mm)

VIDEO:


 These I've had - and use all the time.



New tools, and new books ....

The one on the right, by sumie, was picked up while shopping with our youngest son, at Mitsuwa Market.  When we shop there, occasionally, I'll find a tatting book on the shelves.  
I like smaller motifs & this book has many.  Plus, a lovely cross (back cover).

The one on the left, applemints:  Tatting Lace accessory and motif, was a purchased 
It has pretty tatted jewelry.   And, if not made into jewelry, tat the small motifs (which I like).
I saw this book once, and didn't buy it at the time.  
Of course, kicked myself for not grabbing when I had the opportunity.

International Tatting Day

April 1st is the International Tatting Day

Tatting is the skill of making delicate, elegant, tatted lace.

2022 TIAS ---- oops!




So, I get a pleasant e-mail from Jane Eborall each day I have participated in the tatting game.   
This time I read:

"Can you check that the chains are lock chains?  I can't quite tell from your picture.  If not can you just replace the last 15 of the doubles or it won't work out properly?  You may have done lock chains but I can't see!!!!"

   
 Yes, I knew I hadn't made lock chains.

If you knit,
you know it as T I N K.

If you are a needleworker,
you know it as F R O G 
Rip It, Rip It 
out ....

Not sure what unknotting your tatting is called.
Retro?  Undo?
Never mind opening a closed ring.


Giving Day-11 and Day-12 another try : )
