I'm getting behind on a lot of things. I've been meaning to tat this mystery doily from Georgia Seitz's website along with Kak Jon. I'd meant to start almost a month ago, but only now managed to get enough momentum to tat.
Here's my first try. I don't want to use white thread because I already have a plain doily in progress, so I thought working with a strand of gold thread would be fun. It doesn't look good and it's so stiff I doubt it'll block nicely.
Here's the next try and I think it's a keeper. It's variegated Anchor pearl cotton. So far, I like the slight colour changes. I'll think again after the first round is finished. If it looks too muddy, I'll give in and switch to white.
