So, it may be a valid word after all.
I am tatting a finger-less glove for a special person to wear for her wedding next month. This the portion of the lower arm. I am designing as I go and have yet to think of the design to be placed over the hand.
There are beads in there, white seed bead with size 20 thread. I am adding the beads to the picots as I join. Naturally, there are many coil-less pins in use to hold the beads before I make the join. Due the bead size, I used my 0.4mm hook to place the beads when I mke the picot but a slightly larger hook when I make the join.
During breaks from the finger-less glove, I worked on Renulek's Spring 2015. Just started on Round 3. There is no rush on this one. As for Spring 2014, it may be well past summer before I finish this.
Fox, do you recognise the shuttle? Thank you for it (them). I had to sand the tips slightly because they were to tight and difficult for the thread to pass through. No damage was done to the shuttle in the making of this doily.
