This is not to say that I don't also enjoy more challenging patterns (you know I like those too!) but it makes a nice, pleasant change to tat a one-shuttle edging. And they work up faster too as you're not wasting any time winding and unwinding.
I've done something I hate though: I printed this off the internet and I forgot to put the information of where I go it from. The title is "Pizzo a punte con una navetta sola". If someone has seen this and could point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.
That was quick, Crazy Mom Tats already found me the link to the pattern, here it is: Pizzo a Punte
And here is where I got to so far:
Saying that about relaxing though... I managed to make quite a few mistakes in this and had to cut and re-start on four occasions! I don't know what it is... something about the way the rings are connected on different picots and I kept forgetting to tat the bottom rings in pairs... Never mind, I think I've finally got it registered and I'm away.
Looking at the photo on the pattern, I did keep my bare threads a bit shorter and definitely shorter than the 2cm that is called for in the directions (I even wonder if that's a typo because 2cm would be way too long).
I'll be slowing down in the workshop now as the children finished school on Friday. We're having some very hot weather in the UK at the moment and they say it's going to last for a while yet... oh, for a swimming pool... now that would be nice...
