So I've gotten some Tatting done for the challenge.. (motifs 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of the challenge, only 17 more left...) [all xxx will be linked/information on book given when I can get to it)
Maple Leaf from XXX.
Doily from XXX
Bookmark in my old high school colors

Snowflake of my own design
First off, I'm a week ahead on my tatting :) Completed Motif 2, 3, and 4 (21 motif's left)
I completed "Second Day of December" from Lene Bjørn's "24 snowflakes in tatting" - needle tatted in Omega size 30.
Secondly I completed Jon Yusoff's "'Quantiesque' Snowflake" - needle tatted using Lady Shuttlemaker's HDT "Helm's Deep" in size 20.
I also needle tatted a ribbon in size 20 Cebelia - color pink - for breast cancer awareness. They will be available for purchase in my etsy store along with AIDS ribbons. 1/2 of the proceeds will be donated to research.
There's knitting finished, but hats are hard to photograph when you have no willing head to put them on... I'll post those later
So this week was productive, well as productive as I felt like being anyway, which seemed to be productive.
First off, I finished my brother's Habitat Hat. The pattern is on Ravelry.
Secondly, I finished my first motif for the 25 Motif Challenge :) (only 24 more to go, *groan*)
It's shuttle tatted using Omega size 30 thread from HandyHands Tatting. The motif "5th Day of December" from Lene Bjørn's "24 snowflakes in tatting".
Lastly for the week I finished a set of Prototype fingerless mitts I'm titling "Trellis Mitts". I used the basic mitt construction from Smariek Knits Cable mitts (found here) so I had a blank slate and a guide to make a gusseted thumb (because I'm clueless on stuff like that - rather on where to start the increases, how many to increase, etc...).
With the Blank side I wanted to use the trellis from Exartstudent's Claudia hat (found here), but run it all the way up the back side w/ a plain knit plam (i don't like textured palms)
If you would like to test knit this pattern for me before I submit it to Rav I'd appreciate it :)
Oh! I almost forgot! I started to make Idrija lace. It's a narrow tape type lace and I'm enjoying making my first project, but OMG so many turns in the pricking!!!!!! *pulls hair out*
Here's my mouse (well, what I'd completed when I took the pics anyway)
Oh, and it uses sooooooo many less pairs of bobbins than Torchon.. I ma be in love
