Beginning, the Fifth Time

Last night I was trying to begin Row 4 of Renulek's Doiley.  I kept making mistakes and cutting it off.  I went to bed with not anything to show for my time with tatting.  This morning while I was waiting for my tea to steep, I looked in my ORT basket. 
I had cut it off my start four times, I thought it was three. 
With my cup of tea by my side, Irish Breakfast Tea, I began again.  I had to take the pattern and separate out what I was doing.  I drew some simple repeat directions of just the row I was working on.

I think that I have it!  Now we shall see how far I can get.  


  1. Good luck! I was ok this time, but previous times when I've tatted this traditional pattern, my mind has boggled and I've made mistakes, so you have my sympathy!

  2. it is a beautiful pattern - - your ORT container looks lovey with the tatting bits!!! Enjoy the day
