Not What I Meant
Now, I should have started remaking a mask as soon as I was finished, but instead I went back to tatting around rings. I though it would be nice to do some smaller pieces that could easily be remade and were meant to be symmetrical. Of course as soon as I post a picture of what I came up with two problems arose. One, it apparently looks like a Mickey Mouse head. This was not intentional, but now that it has been pointed out to me, that is all I can see. Two, it's not actually symmetrical. I thought I had the stitch counts the same on both side rings, but I was off by one, which I really ought to have noticed. So to solve both problems. I will just remove one side ring and redo it replacing it a bit lower on the side to solve the first problem. No, I don't have anything against Mickey, but his head was certainly not what I was going for.
So, I guess I'll be fixing that necklace this morning and then I'll get back to the art of remaking. Then I think, more rings...maybe in gray next time.
