my 1st tatting attempt


My 1st moteif attempt. on the left side I twisted my chain but had it figured out on the right side but I messed up and did a ring instead of a chain over on the far left. But i think I'm headed in the right direction.


so this is my 1st attempt at tatting. I used size 10 thread just for testers.

That's a very impressive first step! It looks so perfect - every stitch in place. Precision stuff!

Thank you! I picked up the shuttle a long time ago but put it right back down because i just didn't click with me though I admire the work and then I had someone sit down when seeing me do my curtains and ask me about tatting and my Dad had also asked if i still had my Great Great Aunt's supplies so I figured it's about time.

Very nicely done! :) Looking good so far! I love size 10 for learning. It's also fun when you want a big chunky look for a project! :)

10 defiantly helps you see what you are doing. I seem to have jumped from 10 to 60 though, probably not the most recommended jump in thread size! Good thing my eyes are good!
