I wanted to tat an oval doily. After looking through some pattern books, I settled on a pattern on page 7 in Rita Weiss' Tatting Doilies and Edgings.
I am alternating two Lizbeth Size 40 Kelly Green Medium Col. 712 and Sea Island Citrus Col. 161.
Rounds 1-3 completed. It has been a while since I tatted. A break from tatting is required sometimes. I hope to complete this before I get bored. Maybe I should have started with smaller patterns.
