So today I tried the needle way and honestly it was easier then the shuttles. I think because the needle keeps the stitches from flipping around it's easier to see them and not twist them. That's my third tatted circle in total (only one done on the needle) and it looks much more, even or crisper I guess. The stitches are all sitting right in that one up there. So I guess now I actually try to make something. :)

Well for my birthday (Thank You Auntie) I indulged in supplies for a new craft. Tatting. Today I finally got time to try it out.
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 ;)

Between music lessons and sports I get time here and there for some knitting. Travel knitting has to be kinda easy but not so easy that it is boring.
I also had this yarn, it's the last yarn I had my mom pick, so it's about time to work on it. So here it is

I am posting this just because it was crazy and it worked
So Monday's are crazy here: 3 kids, 2 schools and the three of them needing to be driven in early. Then there is laundry and speech. Monday's start early and coffee is needed very much on my part.
This morning my Keurig decided to go on the fritz. It was not a good morning. When I finally got home from all thee crazy,about noontime, I googled and tried almost everything there was. Then I found a website that had many visits and reviews. It said to unplug and turn it over and burp it like a baby. Strange but there were more than a hundred people saying that it worked for them.
