Can you think of anything better on a chilly night than sitting in a cushy recliner, under a cozy blanket, with a kitten in your lap, a good book in one hand, a cuppa in the other, and your favorite Pandora station playing? Despite the book and the kitten, I did manage to do a bit of tatting last night, just a few little samples.
In my recent tutorial on loop tatted rings, I showed this as one example of the usefulness of LTR's:
The pattern for this is R 6-6-6-6. *C 6, add beads to ball thread, LTR 4-4, C 6. R 6+6-6-6. Repeat from * for desired length. Make just a few inches of this and you will be an expert at LTR's!
More autumn bliss: I've got some pumpkin bread in the oven right now, and my apartment smells like heaven. Of course, poor Squijum couldn't fathom why anyone would be beating together cream cheese and eggs if they weren't planning to give the entire bowl to their kitten.
Thanks to everyone who responded to the last post! I never would have thought of a netting shuttle.
