Our weather took a nasty turn for the cold and rainy so its been a good couple of days of just snuggling in and tatting and trying to stay warm. It seems to be even colder when you go from a 90 degree day to down in the 50s. The last 2 rows on my doily have gone pretty well as they are just rings and chains. The repetitiveness of doing a doily seems to be a bit calming so that is a very good thing. It seemed to work pretty well by using my bigger Lacis/Sewmate shuttle for the core/chain thread and using my Aerlit shuttle for the rings. I am pretty sure I am going to order a Moonlight shuttle to see if it holds more thread than the Aerlit. I am getting quite a collection of shuttles and thread, I guess that's what happens when you have an addiction..you just want more and more!
