Wednesday’s Weekly Challenge #15 – Tat It And See 2013

WARNING!!!! Natalie is out this week, tatting away like crazy so I am in charge of this week’s Challenge.
 My apologies in advance.

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 #15 -Surprise! Jane Eborall Tat it and See 2013

This week’s pattern is from Jane Eborall and is one of her yearly Tat it and See. The idea behind it is that you don’t know what you are making until you get to the end, unless you figure it out sooner. I did this earlier in the year and it was a lot of fun, especially when you are working with a magnificent pattern writer like Jane. The trick is NOT to look ahead. You will be tempted. You will think, just a little peek. Don’t, just do that day, Then move to the next. Since we are doing this late in the game, we do get the advantage of having all days available so we can work it all in one sitting if we wish. But work them in order, one at a time and enjoy the challenge.

In order to finish this before the nest Wednesday Challenge, I am going to do 2 days at a time. After a few days I will set up another post so we can post pictures as we follow along. Lets get this started.

You can find Jane Eborall at any of these locations:

Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/tattingjane/
Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/janeeborall
Tatting Patterns: http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/

I warn you, clear your day before you head out to Jane’s blog. She has no much information and free patterns you will look up and find out your whole afternoon is lost. I know from experience. Enjoy.

Weekly Challenge #14 – Sweetheart Snowflake

This week’s pattern is a variation of Gina Butler’s Garter pattern. This variation was created by Natalie Rogers. It is shared here with Gina’s permission. The idea for a snowflake came to me as I was working through Gina’s lovely garter pattern. I had hoped to have it ready for you last week as a “Christmas in July” type post, but my computer did not cooperate with me. So here it is a week later. I hope you enjoy it!

I haven’t written up very many patterns – so please tell me if you find a mistake or have suggestions. Thanks!
