Yesterday was my first day at tatting and I was a passenger in the car on my way to work.
Today I switched threads to #3 cotton. It's a whole lot easier to work with since my hands are still clumsy.
I found a tutorial on YouTube : RustiKate. She made it really easy to hold my thread, using phrases like "hold your finger like rubber band pistol".
Anyhow, I'm getting better at making double stitches and today, I am making a picot!
Ready for lesson #2.   Yaaay!!  :-)

Tatting for Grandma

I'm learning how to Tat via YouTube and the internet. 
My Grandma Nellie Flowers always wanted to learn. So this is for you and me, Grandma!
On my car trip to work, I brought up Instuctables to see the proper hand placement. I know it's way too tight. Right now it's practice, practice, practice!
