The Monsterpiece Doily, Round 7: Complete!

I finished round 7 of the Monsterpiece Doily last Saturday. I snapped a quick photo and began round 8. These two rounds proved quite easy to do, and they are interesting enough to keep me tatting. I won't bore you with too much text; not much to say otherwise.

Nothing really to add about this round. Finished it with no major issues.


I agree with a comment Carollyn left on my last post. The doily looks great as it is and I agree it would be a good place to stop for anyone who doesn't want to make the whole doily. I won't stop though; it's starting to get interesting. I'm sure other people probably figured it out before I did, I'm looking at you Jane E., but one could go from round 7 to round 8 by starting with one of the chains that connect to round 6 instead of the small ring and make two split rings to jump to round 8. I noticed it when I only had a couple of repeats to go before I had to join the last ring to the first. Thread stats: Manuela no. 20 colour #a044.


As you can see I've completed about half of round 8 already. Despite being almost a mirror of round 7, I think this round so far is easier to tat. Probably because there is only a slight difference in stitch count for most elements and it's pretty obvious where round 8 joins to round 7. Thread stats: same as above.

That's about it for now. With any luck, I may have this round completed by next weekend. I think at that point I may take a short tatting break. I want to knit another pair of socks.
