Tatting has begun!

This is not your ordinary knot.  It is special:  you make lace with this knot.  Last week I began an introductory class to needle tatting.  We had so much fun and learned a lot.

The first step was learning the knot (double stitch) and how to slide it along the thread.  Then we proceeded to closing the ring.  They did so well.

The next step was conquering the picot – that little loop you see below protruding from the ring.

Once this was mastered we attempted joining  the two.  This will probably take a few more lessons but they are up to it.   Homework for the week until Monday’s class was to practice the ring, picot and joining.   I can’t wait to see how well they did!
