I haven't made any further progress on the doily. Well, I started the next motif, but then one of the threads broke in a place where I decided I'd rather start over than try to fix it. I do intend to work on it today and tomorrow, though.
In my last post, I said that I had tried Jane's method for joining without the color blip a few times in the past, but I never managed to eliminate the blip. I consider myself a pretty good tatter, and I can't stand being conquered by any technique, so I decided to give it another go. I have no idea what I was doing wrong before, but this time it worked perfectly on the first try.
I've never been successful despite great directions! Wish I knew your secret!ReplyDelete
Blips don't bother me... still, I think it's impressive that you were able to go blipless this time around!ReplyDelete
I get little confused, if you flip that over is there a blip on other side?ReplyDelete
Nope. On an ordinary join, there would actually be a blip on this side, this being the front. But Jane has a technique where you can pop the shuttle through one extra time and eliminate the blip, on both sides.Delete
Looks like you did a great job learning!! :) I will have to try that sometime. :)ReplyDelete
Blips don't bother me either, but perhaps I should give Jane's technique a try anyway.ReplyDelete
I love that 'blip' is a technical term.ReplyDelete
