A week ago I found in one of stores a small plastic thing, the one I’m looking for a long time now – a tatting shuttle. And this is where my story begins…
For over 2 years now I want to learn how to tatt.
So I get myself a shuttle, I have yarns and I have You Tube. So I start to learn. Basically tatting is making lace by tying knots – easy! Everything but – that is! First i was tying knots the wrong way. Yes! there is a right and wrong way of tying knots if you wanna do tatted lace. Then you have to use to tie knots right way all the time.
Then come the loops and rings and picots. And when I get a grip on that I started to search for some easy pattern to test my progress. And I found a lovely Owl earrings. First few trays where total bust…
But, I’m not giving up that easy. Looking true internet I stumbled upon a forum InTatters – great place for all tatting lovers. Nice lady’s from forum helped me with advice’s and I managed to make my first pair of tatted earrings correctly:
Encouraged with my success I started a new project.
And now I’m half way true it, after many mistakes and start overs. Hopefully this time I’m gonna finish my project and show it here.
