I managed to finish my first practice piece - in dishcloth cotton to make it easy for me to see. Lots of mistakes but at least I understand them.
Now I've started another practice piece in a number 20 thread - still thick but less so. I'm still trying to get the hang of the tension as you can see. I am fascinated by the fact that a series of knots comes out looking like a woven fabric - it feels like magic. I can see this craft is going to become another obsession!
And here is Sunny - hasn't she matured, even in a week! She had bounced around so much that she fell asleep on the window-sill. My husband says wouldn't it revolutionise the world if we could get the amount of energy out of a battery that a kitten can get out of a small tin of boiled chicken!
