I am so thrilled, my 'Movie star dressing' has been awarded a star letter from 'Knitting magazine. I got my copy today and there I am. I have won a Rowan membership for a year. I've already had the magazine and they have some fantastic autumn and winter patterns, which are my favorite to knit.

You can see the page and other photo's on my blog.

I've never had anything printed before, I'm thrilled they liked my efforts.

Way to get published NoBones!

On another note...I had no idea you are a tatter. I am thinking I need to add this to my list of "string related abilities." I'll have to pick your brain for tips! I am going to try out needle tatting. I haven't view the videos yet so I'm not sure if you use a shuttle. But, I was wondering on shuttle tatting, do you actually fluidly pass the shuttle into the loop? In other videos or pictures I've seen, I can never tell...it almost seems like it dips in and out but not through, know what I mean?:??

The pattern is in 'Rowan, Beads, Buttons and lace'. It might be called something else in the US, I'm not sure.

It took 5 months, but I didn't work on it every day. It was also something like my 3rd or 5th project, I'd made a scarf and bag before that.

When all my Rowan goodies come I will put them in a pile and take photos to post.

I just watched both videos and they're great! I've never tried tatting, either, but have always been fascinated by it. NoBones' tutorials are great with clear closeups. Gosh, if my DH knew I was thinking about THIS, he'd have a cow. I'm always trying new things and never finishing anything!:lol:

Binky Kat - the shuttle does pass through the loop.

I know the basic mechanics of tatting, but I apparently don't have a "talent" for it! It is a fantastic art, but not the most forgiving. My grandmother did beautiful work, but never taught my mother (who wanted to learn, but was told she was too stupid to do it - but, that's another story). Years later I saw a lady tatting and she was amazed I knew what she was doing. She offered to teach me, and I learned just enough to say I know how. I've never tried needle tatting, but I would encourage both of you to give either shuttle or needle tatting a try. It's an art that could use a revival :lol: I pick up my shuttle every now and then and make a few inches of trim - just to make sure I haven't forgotten how - Leslie, you and I have a lot in common as far as learning new things and not finishing! Knitting is the first thing I've learned that I actually continued to do and have (so far) several finished projects to show for my effort!

Thats just amazing, I can't believe you spent 5 months working on that. (although I spent two years on a simple afghan!) It's really gorgeous and what fun to be published. Big Congrats Nobones!:cheering:

Without wishing to dampen anyone's spirits, needle tatting is something that is considered fiddler than shuttle tatting. It's a fine needle that can be hard to thread.

I can only use the shuttle, but I'm told the method of making the stitches is very similar, (just one stitch used and worked in 2 parts like the shuttle).

You can use 1 fluid movement, or slowly make each part of the stitch, it depends on the level of confidence in working the stitches.

I hope this is of some use to you, if you need any help and I'd be happy to help you if I can.

NB, I was kind of wondering, actually, what the preferences were between the needle or shuttle. The shuttle seems more fluid.
I watched your videos after my last post...very lovely and easy to view. And I am sort of becoming a geek about accents...you have a very pretty voice. I think my midwestern tone is sorta boring and I wish I lived in England. I love English, Australian, Irish, and Scottish accents (hugh jackman and craig ferguson :teehee::heart:)

Nobones
08-11-2007, 07:59 AM
I'm sorry to disappoint you but I'm actually Welsh, not English. I am proud to be Welsh, however I think the accent's terrible. I have always been told I sound like an English rose, people seem very shocked when I say I've lived all my life in Wales. My father was an English teacher, so I think that's why I have never developed the welsh twang. My hubby is from England yet has a distinct welsh twang much to his annoyance!

I'm glad you found the video helpful. I enjoy doing them and like hearing the feedback.

Nobones, is the Welsh community really bilingual? I had a bit of Welsh taste during my linguistics degree and i think it's a really cool language. Can you speak Welsh, do people around you speak Welsh?

Nobones
08-11-2007, 08:42 AM
I cannot speak Welsh, I live in South where it isn't common to speak it. It's still spoken a lot up in North Wales. They do teach it in secondary schools now, but I missed that.

Contrary to what the tourist board will tell you, the Welsh language is dying out. More people I know can speak French, I don't think I know 1 person who can speak Welsh, it's just not popular in the south.
