I did it! I made Mark's Elegant Heart! If I'd known it was really going to work out, I would have used a more color-suitable thread. LOL! I would also have used the same color for the 3rd thread that is needed to do purl tatting, sometimes referred to as "pearl" tatting. But it's okay since I really don't have to hide these threads, although it would make a nice motif if I did.I think the remainder of the Wintery Tree will be much easier since I don't have to come to a point anywhere. When I make the real tree, I'll just put a beautiful star at the point and any little boo-boo's will be moot.
I had quite a bit of fun looking through http://whatnottocrochet.wordpress.com/ yesterday. Some images are NOT suitable for children, btw. There was once a blog about things that should never have been knitted. It was so successful that they wrote a book and I've never seen them again! Actually there were more things I would have knitted that they made fun of than what I would crochet from this site. I had to agree with 98% of their choices. Sometimes it wasn't the pattern but the color combinations. I was never a big fan of the 70's colors anyway.
