Nobones, I learned to tat!
Thank you for your videos about tatting, Nobones!
I'm so excited, I had to share, that with the help of Ellie's tatting videos from her blog, I learned how to tat!
Here's a picture of a christmas ornament I made. It needs blocked, and probably some starch to stiffen it up, but I think it turned out really pretty.

Oh, that's so lovely - Well Done, that lass!

I did try tatting once but I'm still undoing the knots.

All the Best

Ellie

I always wanted to learn to do that. I don't think my eyesight is up to it though.
Good job.. it looks fantastic!!

Congrats and kudos to you for learning something so difficult.

I've always wanted to learn but have been too intimidated. My grandma tatted and made me several items when I was just a girl and I still have them. I remember thinking how beautiful and delicate they were. She also did filet crochet and made me a wall hanging that said "I love you" with my name. Grandma was great.

Well, I guess it's a good thing I didn't know it was that difficult! It took me a bit to figure out how to get the knots to slide, though.

That's sweet about your grandma. I have several doilies that my grandma made, and now that I know the time that goes into crafts like that, they're all the more special.
Thanks for all your kind comments, everyone.

That is beautiful! I have been struggling with tatting for a while now, and the videos from Nobones did help a lot, but it isn't clicking for some reason. I have the "flip" down, no problem. I just can't seem to get how to join rings, and I can't get my picots the same size for the life of me.... I tried again the other day, and thought I had it, but it turned out awful. However, my cats loved all the bits of string they got to play with every time I cut off the work started over!
