There’s a lot to be said for a craft that can fit in a pocket. That was certainly the appeal twenty-five years ago when I was doing a lot of hiking and camping.
When I returned to our Vancouver office for the summer, I fell in love with our new crochet thread line – Curio. The colors are absolutely stunning. While I was admiring Curio, Kim mentioned that we had also picked up a tatting shuttle and a couple of instruction books. That certainly got my attention! I couldn’t believe tatting had found its way back into my life.
See what I mean about the Curio colors? I grabbed a ball of Curio and an extra shuttle and headed for my office. Wow! Muscle memory is magical!
Well, my hands had good memory but my mind was not quite up to the task of leaping back into tatting. I looked over the books we were offering and decided that I would take a look through Easy Tatting by Rozella F. Linden. I needed to brush up on my technique and on understanding patterns.
Armed with books, shuttle and a few balls of Curio, I headed home for a Tatting Immersion Weekend!
