Danish tatting day

The next saturday there was the danish Tatting Day, with a tatting workshop. You see how they are all concentrated and busy working.
I taught a piece from my last tatting book, called Rita.
In a big room downstairs there was a little exhibition of all the works of the members, and there were also sellers of thread and shuttles.


There I bought some balls of variegated Lisbeth thread size 20.
With this thread I worked the piece of the workshop, which you see here on the right.
Do you see the surprice? This piece Rita has split rings in the middle, and..., look at them, they are all in one color. And the stripes of the squares are all in different colors. After every split ring i have changed the shuttles with a simple knot (to chainge the colors, when I work with 2 different colors), and, 2nd surprise, the color did not change, all green on one side, all lila on the other.

It is such a treat to peek into this Danish tatting convention! Thank you for sharing with us.

Your lesson sample reminds me that I have been wanting to tat your Rita design for my mother, whose name is Rita.

Such a lot of pink tatting! - was it a special "Pink Day"? - it's my favourite colour.

Gentile sig.ra Iris le faccio i miei complimenti per i suoi splendidi lavori, sto cercando di realizzare gli orecchini che lei ha pubblicato un pò di tempo fa, ma non conosco il nodo "shoelace", mi può aiutare? Grazie.

Is it possible to get the pattern for this lovely piece? I would love to make this as I have just learn to do block tatting. My e-mail is janetsmith6567@gmail.com. If there is a charge for the pattern, please let me know how much and how to pay.
