Here is a doily that I finished not too long ago. It was started more than a year ago. The doily is from one of those Italian magazines. I made it from looking at the picture since I can't read Italian at all. The doily was made using size 20 Manuela thread color numbers 203, oo7 and 201.

Hi All,
I have been doing proofing of patterns for upcoming tatting books. So I don't have any tatting to show you all right now...but in between tatting I have been knitting very slowly on my sweater which is called Beadwork and is designed by Jade Starmore. I finally have the back finished. So here are the picture of my back. So is a couple pictures for you if you are reading this blog...and Erin...lookie...lookie...I got my back finished.

Later on tonight when I go to just flop in my bed I will read on to see what I will do next on my sweater. I am trying to decide for one if I want to start the sleeves next or the fronts.

This sweater takes alot of work. For one thing the yarn strand is thin...and takes forever to knit to get any length to it...but I know I will love this sweater when I get it finished. I plan on making a couple lace shawls eventually too. I got the yarn for those is just adding more time and years to my life.

Enjoy the pictures.
