I have, out of necessity, become quite proficient at unmaking lace. I spent almost and hour at Lace guild yesterday undoing the tatting I had done the first hour and then re-tatting in the 3rd hour back to where I had been when the mistake was made. I think that in any artistic endeavor one learns as much or more by fixing mistakes then in any way else. I'm just glad that it could be fixed; I've had to cut whole section off tatting because they couldn't be fixed. The lesson learned is to pay better attention to the pattern.
Speaking of patterns; the wonderful Margie has invited me up to her house on Friday to riffle through her bobbin lace pattern stash! It's good to have friends.
