Rolling! Rolling! Rolling off the Shuttle

As if you hadn't guessed it already ... yes, finally tried rolling instead of knotting.  And to prove that I did, here is a picture of some  fragments of my attempts at roll tatting.  I must say after the first few hiccups it rolled out quite well. From the fifth roll onwards, I actually enjoyed it.

The top left was done in size 10.  Didn't turn out so nice. Tried again with the one on the right.  This time it was much better. As for the green piece at the bottom, well ... let's just say .. I am on a roll.

  5. You and Fox are trailblazers together! - Roll tatting - and clunies must be next! Your examples look very elegant, and I like the purple and white piece! I'll look forward to a pattern or two from you, because I know you will explain the technique very clearly to the rest of us!

  6. Jon, you've got me wanting to read again... tatting books! If I read, I don't have time to tat. If I tat, I don't have time to read. I think I'll do a lot of each when school gets out for the summer. Your roll tatting looks beautiful!
