lucky and silly me

First for the lucky me part, I was one of the winners of a giveaway held at I'm so excited for the goodies to arrive in the mail. I'm going to try and learn to shuttle tat this summer, so the shuttle I won will be by first shuttle! Now if only I can figure out how to shuttle tat. I love handkerchiefs and my mom really loves them. Any ideas for a nice fast edging for a first tatted hankie?

Second for the silly me part, I decided to tat Jon's bookmark again with the picots on the edging. I've discovered that I'm a less lacy lace person. I think the lacy lacy with all of the picots is beautiful, but less me. After I tatted this up and hid the thread, I realize that I forgot to the add the picots to join the second part of the bookmark. Maybe I'll try it again and be a bit more careful next time.


  1. I'm not sure why all of the space in the post. It looked okay before I posted it.

  2. Wiggle a hook in between the stitches where the picot OUGHT to be. I think it was Georgia Seitz who said the the top of the stitch is just a picot that hasn't grown up yet.

  3. Thanks for the idea. I'll give it a try later.
