    Nice blog post! You know, you can pick out mistakes in tatting. Use the pick or hook on your shuttle to loosen one knot at a time and unwork it. Or if you’ve already almost closed a ring, stick your shuttle into the ring and force it back open a tiny bit at a time until you can grab it with your fingers and pull. If the ring is completely closed, cut it open at the bottom, tie a knot, and keep going 🙂

    • I do generally try to pick out a mistake, or if it’s not very noticeable I just keep going and ignore it, but I rarely manage to finish a good sized project without some mistake that I just can’t seem to fix. I’ve also had thread break while trying to fix it. I’m sure I’ll get better with time and practice too, that why I try to do a tatting project out of each issue. One day I’ll take on one of the big ones, like a table cloth or something!

    Beautiful! and I love the 2 color. I never learned to tat, but that makes me want to learn.

    • I started with needle tatting which was much easier, then I learned the traditional shuttle style and having the experience with needle tatting really helped me understand what needed to happen. It is surprisingly easy and surprisingly hard at the same time.
