I've got a preview of my newest creation in progress. The tatted hat part two, if you will. Unlike my first one, this hat is not based on any pattern. I'm just making it up as I go along. I started with a Grand Daisy medallion, one of my favorite designs and I'm just increasing slowly around. As soon as I get the circumference right, I'll add a band of grand daisy medallions. Although I'm not certain at this point how that will work out for me. My first hat made it to the front page of etsy and has almost 900 views now, lots of hearts and no bites, but I'm not really surprised. Using the size 10 thread, it took forever to work up so I'm charging a lot. The yarn is working up much faster, so I think this one should be less expensive. I'm using a lovely brick colorway that I got from fearlessfibers and used for one of my mother's day scarfs. If it comes out okay I'll list it the same way I did my scarfs so you can have it made with any yarn you like.
On another note, the thief I previously mentioned is at it again. This time the photo stolen was of one of the lovely brooches that slvrlily made with my tatting and her description was just copied and pasted. That description included my store name, so I'm particularly annoyed now. It is beyond me how someone can think this is okay to do. I'm taking suggestions for revenge plots if you've got any. My strongly worded emails are just being ignored for some reason.
