Does this look more like the photo in the book. What am I talking about? This!! Getting the chains to entwine.
I thought all I had to do was block it correctly but I just realised it is not so, silly!! It should entwine meaning some celtic tatting. I could not see it from the diagram in the book and the Japanese instructions. So this means I have to tat this again.
I am beginning to think that, this is the way I am going, starting this year, with my tatting. I have to tat each pattern a few times to get it right. Where is my concentration?
