I finally took the dive and began Jan Stawasz's Monster doily. I just grabbed whatever was on the shuttle with a hook and matched up the second shuttle based off that color. I seem to be working with very very fine threads right now.
I picked up another 'box' for my projects.I was drawn to it because it has that tiered shelf in it. Plus it was clear so I can see what I have in it before I end up picking up the wrong project box. For $3 USD, I couldn't pass it up. I was wondering around WalMart and remembered seeing a post about tatting with fishing line. Or maybe it was a Facebook post, either way, I was there and had time to kill...I picked up the finest line that was under $6 because I had already found that box and I limited myself to only spend ten dollars there.
We have a wonderful lady who is going to retire in a month from my work. I want to make her a doily as a retirement gift. She loves my lace and wears all the little titbits and such I make her. Last time I made a gift for someone retiring, it was this one.
