In February the Little Bobbins podcast had a little-a-long. Small items, small people, “little” in the name of the pattern, etc. That is why I knit the small stuffed heart in the last post. At the same time I got a hankering to tat my favorite heart pattern, so I actually made two at that time.
I have so missed tatting that I jumped at a request to tat a cat for a co-worker. She saw it on Pinterest and wanted it for a frame. I couldn’t find a reference to the original designer so I can’t credit that person. But if you know, please let me know. It’s a very creative design, the cat is very recognizable, and I think I would like to make more patterns by this designer. Here is the cat in process…I hope to finish it tonight.
I also finished my tea cosy with the little sheep on it. Loved the pattern, learned a lot. Did my first steeks, tried the Vikkel braid. The cosy fits my smaller teapot, but it is tight. I have a feeling this will be more decorative than functional for me.
