Ok, Yes, I know it isn't tatting...but....I havent managed to finish a crochet item since the dreaded arthritis attacked my hands, Having had an op on each, both good results, thought I would try again. But who in their right mind would make their first try with no 80 thread and a no 1.00 crochet hook?!
From start to finish , albeit in small doses it has taken me almost three weeks to do I row single crochet in each hole, then two rows of the little fan pattern, think it is going to be unique! back to the shuttles, four evenings max for a hankie with one of them( and they look cleverer)
