Hahaha! I worked on this for 2 hours under the patient guidance of Gail and this was my great result. Did a whole lot of laughing as for some reason I just couldn't "get" it. I persevered though :)
Had to cut my mess of knots off from the shuttle and try again and slowly, slowly I made some knots and a few picots that turned out right :)
Another little piece that took me a couple of hours to do. I had to undo just about every single one of the double knots at least once to get them to be the right way. Think I'm getting the knack, maybe?
For my first big piece I would dearly like to make this pattern which is from a 1997 Anna magazine. I can just imagine how long it will take as it looks complicated and I don't know how to join things yet.
