Life Line

Life lines are a beautiful thing. There I was working on my shawl when Aunt Gossip comes over and asks me what I'm working on. I tell her about it and she asks to see it. I carefully move all the stitches to the cable part of my needle, hoping to avoid any dropping of stitches, and let her take a look. She somehow managed to drop like, 10 stitches. I tried to fix it but it was hopeless, I ended up ripping back to my last life line (about 14 rows back!). I'm back at the point before I had to rip back (the red arrow is where I ripped too) but I think I made another mistake, I'm missing a stitch :o(

You can't see my life lines but trust me, they're there. I'm using a dark thread and it kinda blend in with the background.

Today I'm leaving for the "good" family reunion so no updates for a couple of days (I'll be back Saturday evening). My Aunt Crafty is going to (try again) teach me how to tat!! Hopefully it'll click this time around :o)

Have a good weekend everybody!!


  • Good luck with the tatting. My tat-crazy grandma tried to teach me, but I just didn't get it. I think there's a part of me that rejects it because it's so much work for so little show. But if you can figure it out, I'll still be envious. The shawl looks beautiful.
