Words from the Knot House

Accidental Heart

 

I was attempting the pattern for “Priscilla Yoke Ear Rings” provided by Elain Gan on her blog: http://tattingpatterns.blogspot.com (which I was linked to via a pin on Pinterest) when I was distracted by conversation and accidentally connected a ring into the wrong location.  Since I didn’t realize my mistake until I was ready to connect the next ring, I decided to keep it and mirror it on the other side.  The result was a heart shape I like quite a bit.  The pattern for the original medallion can be found in Priscilla Yoke Book by Georgette Batt (for a pdf copy visit: http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org ) on pages 32 and 33.
