Tatting - yet another insane craft

So I visited St. Louis the first weekend in December, and yes, my craft enabler Vicky helped me get hooked onto another craft: Tatting.

So tatting is the "lost art" of making knotted lace. You use the same lace weight cotton or bamboo threads you would use for crochet lace, but its much more sturdy and requires less starch. I'm slow moving with the project, and even worse because I'm making an item for myself, and those tend to not rank so highly on the priority list at holiday time.

Anyways, I can't wait until after Christmas, because then I'll be able to share with you all the cool crochet/knit patterns I've been using to make presents, along with 3 or 4 original patterns I've come up with to make gifts! I can't wait!

Oh, and I just added some new links to the side bar to the right! So check out the "How much yarn do I need?" yardage chart from Lion Brand, and the Craftyminx Crochet School tutorials!
