New Earrings

I've been distracted from shuttle-tatted interlocking rings and cross patterns by the need for some new earrings. I looked through some of the patterns I've saved from other websites and blogs and found great inspiration. The pair pictured below are based on the Poinsettia Earrings designed by Rachel Colvin Jackson. I confess to taking a few liberties with Rachel's lovely pattern. I didn't want to sew in beads afterward so I made long beaded picots and I substituted double stitches for the half stitches Rachel uses in the outer round. I'm very happy with the result. Thank you, Rachel for sharing this pattern with us.

This are so pretty. I have always wanted to learn to tat. I tried once but it turned out badly. I don't know what the problem was. I knit and crochet both but I sure did struggle with that tatting shuttle!

Thank you.

Stitchesbymom, I dropped by your blog to recommend you do a search for videos on YouTube or try some of the links on my beginners page. Once you get the knack of that one knot, you are on your way to making lots of lovely things.
