Very first tatting

This is what I did last night instead of studying stinky chemistry equations. It's a bad picture, but at least you can kind of see what it's supposed to be. I've got lots of practice to do before I make anything worthy.

ETA: Annie, here's the site I found. It has pictures!

Thank you Sue.

I did enjoy it. Now I need to practice, practice. I'm terrible about learning something enough to say I can do it and then dropping it. I guess you could say I can do a lot of things, but I can't do many things well.

That's cool! I took a peek at the page.... I didn't see instructions for people with 10 thumbs. Well, maybe I'll give it a try anyway. It looks pretty portable, yes? It might give me something to do besides play solitaire on my Palm when I'm sitting in a waiting room somewhere.

Very portable. I haven't had time to try it tonight. I've been good and studying instead.

Looks good to me! You should see my first attempts - I still have them. BIG thread, bad tension. I just kept at it. I probably would not have kept at it but there were so many pretty things on the internet and so many people excited about new techniques..I'm glad I stayed with it.

Thanks for the kind words Gina. I'm going to keep at it until I can tat well.
