first lace tape was made.
I had the lace made on time but I didn't get around to taking photos until weeks later and I'm only today getting them up on the blog for you.
This is what happens when I'm really enjoying working on a project, I find myself working on the project rather then documenting the process.
Half way through I realised I needed to put it aside and get onto making a gift then I had to get my Christmas crochet projects underway. I've still got a few crochet projects from Christmas to share with you too. (There are more progress pics over on Instagram for those that have been wondering what all those little squares are for - that's right, I'm finally on Instagram!)
But they are really just excuses, the rest of the reason I haven't blogged about my second lot of lace tape is due to the fact that my project wasn't working out how I imagined it would. It's currently sitting in the naughty corner and I don't want to talk to it (or about it).
It's just sitting there waiting for me to figure out if I'm going to continue with it as is, or frog some of it and fix it up, or change it up all together.
So if you've been waiting to see what I was doing with the lace tape, I'm very sorry to have kept you waiting so long.
Here's a sneak peak of current progress for you. This is the part I'm fairly happy with.
Both lace tape patterns are by Sheruknitting, I used the You Tube video tutorials for both my first crochet lace tape and my second crochet lace tape. She can go a little fast sometimes but her tutorials are wonderful. I'm particularly fond of her accent and little idioms such as '...it is the same beautiful on the right and the wrong side.'
This second tape design works up much faster and is easier to make. I joined my tapes using Bruges crochet. I'm sure there will be a final post about this project eventually but the super hot weather has hit and I don't think I'll be doing a lot of crochet over the next few months.
Update April 2016: I hope to pick this project up again as soon as my shoulder and back lets me start crocheting again. You should be able to find the video tutorial here, just let me know if there are any problems.
