I haven't been doing any tatting these past couple of weeks. Mom fell and broke her hip in three places, requiring surgery and a short stay at a rehab center. She's back home with dad now, who has been taking care of her, and seems to be feeling much better.
Before that happened, I did manage to tat a square based on the Priscilla Cross design from my previous post.
It's done in Lizbeth size 40 white and gold (colors chosen before that whole white and gold dress thing happened). It measures 3.75 inches across and 5 inches diagonally. Here it is alongside the cross. It's in the binder where I keep all of my designs and diagrams:
These two still need diagrams, which will be made as soon as I am able to concentrate on them.
In the meantime, I've been learning how to knit again. I find that knitting requires a lot less brainpower than tatting and can be done even when I'm half asleep. I've just been practicing my knits and purls with a simple knit 4 purl 4 scarf:
This little guy likes to join me on the couch, though I have to be careful...he likes to chew the paper wrapper as well as the yarn!
With the weather finally getting nicer, I decided to pick up a happier color of yarn at the store yesterday. I think my next project will be leg warmers with a simple cable design.
And, as soon as I am mentally rejuvenated, I will of course get back to tatting :)
