7 plus 6 is 13

Pin It now!
7 outer rings and 6 inner rings make 13 rings. This is followed by ring#15 of the leaflet. So how did I miss Ring#14?! Ah, yes, I definitely need to go back to kindergarten to learn counting! Last time it was for simple addition.

the crane is hungry!

On top right is my trial tatting in order to establish the length of bare thread in size 40 thread. I was happy and did the entire round 4, climbing out with a split ring. It was only on the last element of Round 5, that the bulb in my eyes and head went off!

Peered into the diagram and found that there are 8 outer rings and 6 inner rings in the arch above each butterfly, equaling 14. Followed by ring 15 which starts the leaf/frond. Sigh.

The hungry crane went to work, snipping it all off.

Off to restart the round. Will show how it all looks next time. Luckily, the round tats up pretty quickly and is so lacy!

Enjoy, while I return to my dunce corner, shuttle and abacus in hand :-)))

  1. I'm very sorry! I hope that the "hungry crane" will starve after this round!

  2. There is always a 'bright side' even when we make a mistake and have to cut off an entire round....or two....or three.... And after all, when we re-do the part we cut off, we are still TATTING, so it is still something to enjoy, even though we are doing it over again instead of doing an 'new' round. Glad you fed your hungry crane. (My scissor is a unicorn.) :) Also hoping your crane gets very, very hungry before he gets 'fed' again.

    1. LOL, Stephanie, you don't like birds?! I did enjoy working the round again, and thankfully it was an early round.
      I agree that Tatting includes it all :-))))

  3. Don't feed your hungry crane too often. So sad to see a row needed to be cut off your project. But, glad to know others make drastic mistakes like I do. (After decades of tatting.) Now I feel normal. Thank you for the normal feeling! And, good luck to you on the rest of your lovely project!

    1. Ah yes, I'm hoping snipping off tails will keep the crane fed, Anita ;-D I'm hoping to use the snipped off portion somewhere somehow.
      LOL, I'm OK, You're OK ;-P

    1. LOL, you may use both, Mel, once I figure out a transponder to beam up the scissor to you, Mel ;-D
