I sort of understand what it feels like to be Fox.
This is the second time I've tried to tat Jon's Chinese Coin bookmark. The first time was a few years ago and the thread was way too fine for a first try. I abandoned it planning to try again later, not this much later, but later.
I started this earlier in the week and was quite proud of myself for getting one whole side done. Then other things got in the way and it sat on my table, patiently waiting for me to get back to it. Tonight was the night.
I had just completed the second segment from the bottom and was pleased with how it was going....until I realized I was one ring short to join to on the left side.
How did that happen? I kept studying it and couldn't figure out the exact error except I was short one ring! I finally got that I had not made the second ring between segments. The only way to fix it is to cut out the whole segment. I couldn't ignore it and go on at this point. It's now glaring at me!
I had numbered the order of the top segment of rings to help me keep it straight. Jon colored coded the split rings according to where they were split but I still had to draw a line at the split to know where easily. I should have numbered them all the way down and possibly would not have missed that ring.
So maybe I'll tackle it again on another day. It's not that hard, really! You just have to keep track of the order of rings and chains. It was tatted in size 30 Cebelia.
