I will stick to knitting - tankyouberimach!
I went to a yarn store near my house, and talked to the lady, who sold me some verrryyyy thin yarn and some size 0 needles. I tried for an entire weekend to knit every other kind of lace I found in my ever growing collection of pattern books, but could not master it.
I cannot tell you how discouraged I was. Maybe cause I was on a deadline (I wanted to give it to her for her Bridal Shower) or maybe cause I had never tried Lace before, but I could just NOT do it!
So my mom and I found a book on Tatting, and I gave that a try.
Pictures were taken in the car, on my way to the Bridal Shower, at a stop light, so please excuse the bad images. It is not perfect - AT ALL... and I prefer knitting. But I made it for my favorite (way older) cousin who I love very much, so this project was worth every single second of frustration.
One last note: My cousin PROHIBITED me from posting pics of her on this here blog... So, here is me, and someone who may be my cousin, and another person who may be my other cousin (whose permission I have not asked to post her image anywhere).
Love you cous!
