Finally A Head!
Poor dragon lost his head and
has to hide until it regenerates!
I've been tatting Anne Bruvold's Norwegian Dragon pattern for the last 2 weeks. It met with early disaster when I missed a ring and then horrors of horrors ran out of thread doing the head. Poor dragon had his head cut off for a week!
I persevered and finally found him a head. I was really tempted at one time to pretend it was a side profile and skip the other wing. During the process I learned I never have to worry about SSSRs coming undone, they are pretty hard to cut apart. I'm thinking in a regular pattern that ends with a ring you could substitute a SSSR and just cut the thread where it comes out. I used Yarnplayer's Pizazz thread and I love the vivid colors. I think I might try doing Anne's Sea Horse Dragon next. You find this pattern and a bunch of others at: http://nuperelle.net/Sammensatt/HjerterEng.htm.
I love to talk and I'm not sure I'm even listening to myself. My main goal in life it to have fun but my idea of fun is a little boring to others. There's nothing more exciting than finding a new twist on old information. I've been known to fall asleep at bars (no booze involved). That's pretty much the essentials.
She Dwelt Among Untrodden Ways by William Wordsworth.
She dwelt among the untrodden ways Beside the springs of Dove, Maid whom there were none to praise And very few to love: A violet by a mossy tone Half hidden from the eye!-- Fair as a star, when only one Is shining in the sky.
She lived unknown, and few could know When Lucy ceased to be; But she is in her grave, and, oh, The difference to me!
