|2012 Norma Benporath Lace Mat Tat-Along|
Completed December 7, 2012
Tatted by IsDihara
It is done! My work on Jon Yusoff's Tat-a-long for The Lace Mat by Norma Benporath is complete. The gradient yellows give the mat a cheerful look, like lacy sunshine!
Update: I forgot to mention that this lace mat measures 6 3/4 inches (17.145 cm) in diameter.
The threads I used are:
- Rounds 1 and 2: Lizbeth®40 Pinapple Parfait #170
- Round 3: Lizbeth®40 Honey Drizzle #180
- Round 4: Lizbeth®40 Honey Drizzle #180 & Lizbeth®40 Gold #611
Thank you, Jon, for sharing this vintage treasure from "down under" circa 1930s. It has been such a pleasure to participate in the tat-along.
FYI - a tatting blogger expressed her fear of losing clovers which she had tatted separately while adding them to round four. That is exactly what I did -- lost clovers. Twice. No idea where they have gone, perhaps the same place as missing socks?
Since they never turned up, I tatted replacements. And I made a mistake with them that (to me) stands out glaringly in the photo. But I wonder if anyone else noticed before I sent you looking?
The perfectionist in me wants to cut them off and redo, but if it is really a case of "nobody will know from the 14th row," I won't trouble myself to correct the mistake.
