I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do for Tatting day. I tried asking over on the Facebook page, but I didn't get a whole lot of responses or 'likes' and half of the comments I got weren't exactly helpful. I've gotten no suggestions here, which all leaves me figuring it all out myself. I suppose that's how it usually is, but it also leaves me thinking there is far less enthusiasm for the idea than in past years. Maybe I just won't stress or focus on it then. If something comes to me, great, if not, no big loss.
I did switch gears on the Armenian lace yesterday. I had managed 10 rounds of the small lops, so it
was time for a change. I'm now on the second round of fancy side loops. I remember hating these on my first doily as getting them even in size is quite fiddly. I'm better at it now, but I still don't love them. I'm thinking three rounds for the sake of design and then I'll be off to something else. Perhaps another small loops pattern round, maybe zig-zags. Who know if I'll even finish the three round of this today. Since this stitch is more complex, I mange only about a quarter of a round with a single length of thread. It's slow going, but this is a marathon project, not a sprint. I sure would like an order in the shop for a quick pit stop of tatting though. Man, did I take that metaphor further than intended, sorry.
