I've been extremely grateful for your messages.
I don't have the next bit of tatting ready to show you yet and anyway, this weekend I thought I'd concentrate on knitting.
One item is this cardigan/jacket which I made last year.
It turned out to be too big in the end and I took the drastic decision to re-knit the whole thing. Not only re-knit it but also convert it from the traditional "from the bottom-up in separate pieces" way it was designed to a top-down all in one construction. I'm making it in a smaller size but I also went down a needle size for a more structured fabric so I've been doing a lot of maths! I've even made it more fitted with darts on the front. It's been a really interesting exercise. So far so good. I've now done the whole body and am half way down the first sleeve. Just one more sleeve and the collar to do. I'm not showing it to you now because it doesn't look so good with the wool all wiggly-waggly from having been unravelled. It'll look much better once it's finished and I can wash it and the wool will relax back into shape.
Apart from that, I'm making my son a hat. In a wool I'd not tried before: Debbie Bliss Rialto DK. Beautiful stuff. So smooth and a joy to knit with.
