#9 and #10: Familiarity breeds contempt
I was unhappy with how difficulty it was to see the overall pattern with the one “Whirligig” motif in the last post. So I made two more. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s any easier to see it now. I may have miscalculated by putting the tatting on the red background; I thought that the white part of the variegated thread might show up better on a dark color. But looking back at the original single motif, I think it shows up better on the yellow.
Looks like I’m going to have to keep making these in order to have any chance at creating the desired effect. Luckily I enjoy making them.
