Motif #7

Decided to do yet another one from Mary Konior's book "Tatting with Visual Patterns'.  It's the same color as another one that I did, but honestly, the pattern is different, but it kind of does looks the same.  Again I used Lizbeth size 20.  I know it looks easy, but I started it last night and after I got half way though I noticed that I had done six on both the outside and inside....but!  It was on five on the inside....good thing it was rings!  It didn't take me to long to correct it.  I'll pay more attention next time however..!

Motif #6

Another pattern from 'Celtic Tatting knots & Patterns' by Rozella Linden.  This one is a bit larger and I really like the finished look of it.  I did it with Lizbeth threads size 20 in #684 Leaf Green Med., and 131 Vineyard Harvest.

Motif #5

Small Celtic Knot Flowers done from the book called 'Celtic Tatting Knots & Patterns By Rozella F Linden'.  I just love all of the things in this book.  I thought I would do something small again, so I would be ahead more and then tackle a larger project.  It is small, but definitely tricky...!

The one on the left I goofed on the twist in the vines and leaves, so I had to do it over.  I could have taken it apart, but I had already cut off the shuttles.  
I used a HDT for the first flower called 'Nectarine' from Yarnplayer and the second flower was Lizbeth #131 called Vineyard Harvest.  Both size 20.  The green is also Lizbeth #684, Leaf Green - Med.

Let me tell you it was a trick getting the flower together and the first flower had to be re-done.   I have now figured out a way to do it better and a little bit easier....!
