About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Spiral Bookmarks

These aren't stiffened yet. I hope to do that right away and then I hope they dry in time to take to Farmers Market this afternoon. They have been adapted from edging #1, page 23 in Tatting Doilies and Edgings, Dover Press, edited by Rita Weiss. I've enjoyed making them and plan to make more with some of my new Lizbeth.

  2. Love your bookmarks. I just downloaded the book. Would you be willing to share your modifications?

  3. All I did was make a picot down on the 8th ds on the right side of the first ring. As you make the next ring, after 2 dc, attach to the picot on the previous ring. Then finish the ring with 8 ds. And on that second ring make another picot on the 8th ds again. Then as you make the third ring, do 2 ds attach it to the picot on the previous ring and do your 8ds.
    On the other side you have to watch that you're attaching the rings in all the right places and also making your picots for attaching each ring together.
