The Clover Doily

by Eileen Stafford

I used DMC white in size 30 thread and a bobbin filled shuttle (many times filled)
It blocked to 10 lovely inches.
Fun and still challenging for this self-taught shuttle tatter.

Selling a few things on Ebay knackful-knitter.

One is a zippered bag with lots of storage for sewing machine feet....BUT, it could also be used as a tatting bag to hold many tatting supplies!

Then the other two items are Tatting needles.  Never, ever even opened the packages they came in.
Selling because I never found a video/dvd on needle tatting and I'm a visual learner.
Instead, I found a VHS tape of Bev Dillion teaching shuttle tatting.

I'm working on this right now....

Using DMC size 30 thread.  The pattern is Clover Doily by Eileen Stafford, February 2001

Some knitted things for grandsons...

 Blue and green for Joey
  Grey and yellow for Kayden

I knit them in the round and added a shoulder opening so they would go over their heads but still keep the V-neck close to the body.
Both vests were knit with superwash worsted weight wool.

Thank you..... all the generous donations for my mom.
It was enough to send for some of her things so she could feel like she did not leave all 45 years behind.

Thank you, thank you!
