Decided I would try a thing called tatting. It looks fun so I'ma try it. There are two ways to do it. Either with a thing called a shuttle, or with a needle. Since I don't have a shuttle thingy and I do have an apolstry needle I said, what the hell? How different can it be? I did all the stitches and was going along great.
thing I didn't pay attention to is that tatting needles are one size
down the whole thing. Mine's not, it's narrower at the front, that
didn't bother me though, what bothered me was that it gets bigger at the
back where the thread goes through. I go to slip my stitches off and
make a ring, feeling all proud of myself and they come to a screeching
halt, refusing to go over the bump. I sit there and take every single
thread and force it over the edge. And by force, I mean it took work,
they were jammed and didn't wanna move. So I go through the sewing
basket looking for long straight needles and find tiny little craft
needles. Yeah, I went there. I took sewing thead and tried again.
You might wanna click on that, it's tiny.
time to take off the stitches again and they all stop again. Stupid
needle bumps! So, tatting looks like loads of fun but until I find a
straight needle or someone donates one to the cause, I'ma hafta sit this
