German Triangle Motif Doily

As promised, I have a scan of the finished doily. I had intended on posting it yesterday, but ended up getting called in to work to replace someone who didn't show up. I got today off instead. I did spend a fair bit of today doing housecleaning (the horrors!!) and some organizing. Since I am going away this coming weekend, I need to get some of this stuff done. Anyway, here's the finished doily:

For anyone joining in late, the thread used is Lizbeth size 20 colour number 129 Purple Splendor. The pattern is available in Suzanne Schwenke's book Spitzen-Kreationen. I didn't mention it before as I forgot, but the motif is about 2 3/4 inches long across the longest dimension. The doily is about 7 1/4 inches across point to point. This has been a fun doily to tat. It was surprisingly quick too. I do plan on trying another one of Suzanne's motifs soon. I don't know how much tatting I'll get done while I'm gone, but I'll try. I probably won't get a chance to post again till I get back. Till next time.

  1. The negative space is so interesting! - alternate triangles and ovals - how on earth does that happen when it's the same motif being joined?
    Obviously I am not very spatially aware, nor a designer - but it struck me at once!

  8. Very nice doily.... Thanks for sharing the name of the book. I have taken note of the book to order the next time. I don't know German, so I presume this book has diagrams.

  9. Wow, this looks even better than I imagined. (And the image in my mind looked pretty darned good!)

    Chomping at the bit to start one of my own...if only I could decide on a color scheme...decisions, decisions.

    Your doily is TOP SHELF! Just don't hide it up on one, that would be a shame.
