An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Look Ma, No Chains
Muskaan has been working on single shuttle motifs. The first pattern in what is to be a series is the triangle. It's really a building block. I thought I'd start by joining 6 triangles to make a circle. I'm half way. It's taking me longer that I thought it would - these things always do! I should've thought ahead a bit and made the central picot longer, but as this is a first attempt, I will keep going and try to remember all the things I can do better next time. The central rings make me think of the tumbling blocks pattern, they have a mildly 3-D effect.
