Mary Konior's Windmill

I have been admiring the Windmills that several people have tatted recently.  I was intrigued because I had started
knitting the Jojoland "Swirl Shawl"  pattern that looked very similar to the tatted windmills.  So, I picked one of Karey Solomon's HDT color "Late Summer Evening" that I purchased at Tat Days and got started.  I kept adding rounds until it reached 3 1/4 inches in diameter.  I didn't like the picots on the last round since I knew I was not going to attach it to others, so I eliminated them.  I like the way it turned out.  Now, what to do with it?  I think I may frame it.  What would you suggest I do with it?
















Happy tatting,

I really like this thread and the lack of finishing picots. Very nice!

This is pretty, JB!

You could get a clear holder and use it as a coaster or a hot plate....

Amazing how the tatting looks like the knitting! Both are beautiful.

I've never tatted Windmill, although I have looked at the pattern many times. I never noticed the similarity to the shawl pattern before. Yes, I have it and the yarn to make it stashed away someplace really safe. I really think I'll never be bored once I finally retire!

This pattern in this color is so interesting! I'll have to get some.

What a wonderful, well-formed windmill! Is it coaster-size?
