The Second Day of December...kind of

So. Yeah. It's not really the second day of December!

When I decided to do daily posts this month I totally discounted the fact that I am packing all my stuff up to move to Australia in 1 week and have no time for anything, least of all tatting. :(

So, here it is, the 4th of December, and I am hopelessly behind on this monthlong book review...

Here is what I have done so far of the second pattern of Lene Bjørn's 24 Snowflakes in Tatting:
"The Second Day of December"

So close, yet so far!!

Number of Patterns: There are 24 patterns in this book (amazing, right?!) and (Types of Patterns) all are snowflakes (obvs...see the title!). 

Type of Pattern Notation: The patterns are all diagrammed in black and white line drawings, and also have some short explanations of what to do to correctly implement the pattern. (Ex: The snowflake is made in 5 rounds according to the diagram...there are 6 ds between each picot). These explanations are very helpful, but not 100% necessary unless you are very unfamiliar with diagrams. 

Hopefully tomorrow I will have time to tat...we'll see! :)


  1. The picture at top left is the mind blowing snowflake, make you go cu cu for the holidays, well that's what is wrong with me any way ha ha ha!

    1. Yeah, it's one that is intimidating me...luckily it's not until day 18, and at the rate I'm going, I may never get there!! :)

  2. I have done several from this book, they always work out well.
    Lovely snowflake

    1. Thanks Margaret! I've done 3 now, and so far the 3rd is my favorite (it's the fluffy one)'s hoping I make it to number 4! :)
