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! :)
