While I've been writing Inkscape posts, I've also been tatting. Over time, I've accumulated a lot of drawings that are waiting to be turned into patterns. It typically takes me a long time to go through each design, but this time, I'm trying something different.
Instead of stopping to diagram each one on the computer, I'm filing them away in my binder for later use. I have sketched each diagram, which only takes about 5 minutes (as opposed to many hours on the computer). This stops me from losing the flow, and keeps me in design mode for a longer period of time.
Here is what I have churned out over the past few weeks:
The bottom two still need a bit of work. They are a variation of the same theme. Here are the top two next to their original concept drawings:
All of these, in addition to the snowflake I posted about before, still need proper diagrams. I'm holding off on that for now because, let's be honest, diagramming is no fun!
What I am having fun with is practicing turning drawings into tatting. I wonder if I will get quicker over time? The experiment continues...
