Round 2 of Renulek Spring Napkin done

I have enjoyed tatting round 2 of the Renulek Spring Napkin until I needed more thread on my shuttle and finishing off the round!  I didn't have a spare shuttle wound so had to cut the thread to wind the shuttle.  So I decided to wind spares for the next round :).

As for finishing round 2 off, this is my first big project so it took some maneuvering to tat the last join back to the start and finish it off.  In the end I had to fold the napkin so I was able to keep holding the thread the way I was taught to tat the rest of the round.  Hopefully I will get better at this before the last round for the napkin :).


Sorry!  I tried to take a better pic of the thread colour but ended up with a grayish background.  Must try the scanner next or take a pic outside :).

All the posts for this pattern can be found on Renulek's blog here.  You will need to scroll towards the bottom for the first round.

Next Round 3!

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).

  1. Looking good! I was thinking this afternoon that on the next round I must wind a second shuttle before I begin as I have only one ball.

  2. Your doily is looking awesome!!! :) I had to learn the same thing about winding extra shuttles ahead of time when starting a larger project(or have 2 balls of thread, one for working and one for reloading). :)

    1. Thank you :). LOL I do have 1 spare ball of thread but it wasn't easily accessible - too lazy to move containers to locate the container that had the spare thread :).

  4. Looks really good to me, I can't tell that you've had any trouble with it! I'm tempted to join in myself, but I don't have the motivation to finish something so large. Best of luck, I will check back to see how you are progressing!

    1. Thanks Robin :). LOL beauty of having a faraway pic = no mistakes can be seen easily :). You should definitely join in :). I'm going to slowly work on mine and it will probably take me the rest of the year to finish. Planning to do other smaller projects in between :).
