Posy parade! ~ Posy en desfile

Today I bring you a simple motif I consider my “comfort tatt”…
El motivo que hoy les traigo es mi “frivolité recomfortante”…
If you read my blog, you have seen it before. The pattern is Posy from Mary Konior’s book “Tatting with Visual Patterns” and here I show you three I made some months ago to send to Handy Hands for their new Lizbeth gallery, and two I made last week with my hand dyed rainbow thread (the same I used here and here)
Si suelen leer mi blog, ya lo han visto antes. El diseño es Posy del libro “Tatting with Visual Patterns” de Mary Konior y aquí pueden ver tres que hice hace unos meses para la Galería de colores Lizbeth de Handy Hands, y otros dos que hice esta semana con el hilo arcoiris teñido por mí (el mismo que había usado en esto y esto)

Lizbeth 20 – Jelly Beans

Lizbeth 20 – Juicy Watermelon

Lizbeth 20 – Mountain Breeze

My hand dyed size 40 Anchor Mercer crochet – (same thread as next)

As you can see, the colour variegation in my thread keeps working up spectacularly! I wound the thread onto the shuttle from the other end to make the second one with the colours in reverse order.

Como pueden ver, las variaciones de color de mi hilo siguen dando un resultado ¡espectacular! Para el segundo motivo, llené la naveta empezando por el otro extremo del hilo, de modo que el orden de los colores quedara invertido.

And now I have loaded my special shuttle (with size 8 DMC cotton perlé, my favourite color 115) for a simple edging…

Y ahora llené mi naveta especial (con perlé DMC no. 8 en mi color favorito, 115) para una puntilla sencilla…

Two rainbow motifs and the start of a burgundy edging.

      🙂 Thanks Fox! I am quite pleased with it myself. I have to check if I have enough size 40 left to make a last one… and probably do a new dyeing session soon too! I hope I remember correctly which chair I used to wind my hanks, as the length of the repeats is almost the best past of it!

    I love your Posy Parade! Each color looks wonderful, but I especially like your HDT. Cut shuttle! Did you make it?

    Uh oh… You’ve caught the same bug I got 🙂 it’s such a nice pattern to tat isn’t it? Also, as it’s round, there’s a lot you can do with it. AND you only need one shuttle. The thread on the last one works so brilliantly!

    Yeah, I blame that bug to you, Denise! I really like the pattern. Only one shuttle is so simple to me. And no bare thread! (well, except from repeat to repeat, but one has a nice gauge of where one wants to start the next ring so no stressing about leaving to little or too much and the thing cupping…) Speaking of cupping – using only 6 o 7 repeats least to a beatiful cupping shape worth exploring some day!

    And then, maybe some day I’ll master not twisting the lasgt joins, but with short picots and consistency, I don’t think the result suffers for me twisting them, so they are all twisted in this…

    I am off to dye (or at least make some hanks). I hope I get the length the same again!

    Precioso trabajo. Me encanta lo que haz hecho en los diferentes hilos y el mismo patrón. La lanzadera esta genial, disfrútala mucho, lo merece.
