So the first try. Horrible.(that would be the tiny yellow thing) second was smoother (that's the teal)
Then life got in the way , but I was also stuck so seemed like a good place to stop.
These were done with a shuttle, I also bought "tatting needles". Basically same result just different way of doing it. I'm going to try that next time. I figure between the three books I should have a chance. Plus there's always you tube ;)
