Everything’s Coming Up Tatty

3 December 2009

Lots of work and two weeks with a dial-up internet connection has rather shut me up.  It isn’t as though there aren’t loads of things for me to rant about at the moment,  The papers are full every day with subjects that would normally make me rush to the keyboard.

Then there’s knitting of course.  I started what I hope will be my entry for the Sydney Easter Show next year – I started it, I ripped it, I started it again, 2 weeks later I ripped it again, and last night I gave it a 3rd go.  Will it ever make it to the cabinets?  Who knows?  But if there were prizes for the yarn used this one would win.  Knitabulous 2ply (laceweight) silk.   A delight to work with. 

And today I was introduced to a new skill.  A friend is an excellent tatter so I persuaded her to try to teach me – nothing wrong with her teaching skills but I’m not sure my learning ones are up to much.  I was going to post a picture of what I’d achieved so far but decided that the sound of laughter across the nation would put me off.    I’ll keep practising then reveal all.  Can tatting look tatty?
