Spent a little time working on socks these past weeks, but a lot more more time tatting. Tatting definitely is more portable, though I suppose needle tatters, like sock knitters, have long weapons emerging from their work punching holes in whatever it's carried in. But the socks are getting there slowly. I've finished 1 1/2 pairs and managed to lose half a sock, the one I was pushing myself to work on because I liked it the least! But a few tatting ideas have been floating around, and I came up with this one, which is in the current tatting times.
I'd been thinking about all the canning I might not be doing this year, and used the Wandering Wheels technique to make some peaches and plums; I could also have used pink for spiced crab apples and yellow-green for bread and butter pickles, and white for pickled onions (which I don't make) and red for tomatoes, although they tend to be smooshed in the jar to the point of losing their shape, you'd definitely see red and think tomatoes! This was fun and I plan on doing more of them!
