Words from the Knot House

Welcome back to the Wednesday Weekly Challenge. Each Wednesday we will be posting a link to a free pattern and challenging you, the reader, to try it. In addition to the pattern link, we will post a picture of how our tatting turned out when we followed the pattern. Following the challenge, we will feature reader completions of past challenges.

Challenge Issued: Follow the linked pattern in any color combinations and thread sizes you choose. [Variations of the pattern are welcome and encouraged.] Then snap a picture and send it to sbspokane@yahoo.com with the subject line “Weekly Challenge” to see your completed work featured as part of next week’s challenge post. Be sure to include the name you wish us to list with your photo – we want to give you credit! [There is no time limit on sending in your picture – feel free to send in any weekly challenge pictures (from last week or weeks/months ago) and we will feature them as part of the next Wednesday’s post.]

Weekly Challenge #37– Tat it and See (AKA TAIS)
This weeks challenge again comes from Jane Eborall. This week, we are highlighting her annual TAIS challenge. A TAIS is a tatting pattern that is given out piece by piece, leaving the final motif a secret until the end. Currently, the 2014 TAIS is on day 4, so it is a perfect time to join in. Most days take less than 30 minutes, and people post photos of there work as they go, so you never really get to far off.
Part of the fun is also trying to guess what you are making. Some of the guesses I have seen include a nativity, a sail boat, a bonnet and a garden archway. It is amazing how tatting brains work, isn’t it.
So, join in the fun. For me, this is a great way to get back to tatting after the holiday rush. share your pictures with us and with Jane.
