Diane's fudge patterns. (I nearly said recipes.) Left to right these are Purple Fudge, Root Beer Fudge and Pink Fudge. I tatted the Root Beer Fudge first and thought the long chains might benefit from being joined to each other. So I joined the chains on Pink Fudge and it cupped! Sorry Diane. But I rather like the effect, it looks like a flower.

Qanik snowflake and so here it is! The long chains are quite hard to tame, but I think I did ok for a first attempt. I made a mistake on the first chain of the second round, but I didn't want to undo a Josephine ring, so I just used the same stitch count throughout.

I've resisted joining tatting groups on Facebook because I'm afraid of spending too much time on line instead of in the real world. But when I saw the Birthday Ice Drop on Frivole's blog and God's Kid's blog, there was only one thing to do: I joined Diane's Ice Drop Addicts group. I'm a bit dense about negotiating such pages, but I did find files and Nicola Bowersox's pattern. So here are three Birthday Ice Drops:

yed the wool for my beret in August, it's been languishing ever since. At last I've got back to it. The pattern is Cup Cake Rose by Wedina Schmidt, on Ravelry. I've just started decreasing to make the beret shape, so the edge is turning up, but that's temporary. So far, so good!
