But you've done so many other things along the way. There's your daughter - first and foremost. Then all the other projects you've completed as well. And of course, you weren't busy enough and just had to go back to school on top of everything else. It's not just the teacloth and nothing else for you. And that's good. Sometimes we just have to take a break from the really big things. So slowly tatting some areas and taking a few long breaks are both perfectly acceptable, if not necessary. Your teacloth - your pace. Good on you.

Thanks. School is back in and I already havw homework and tests. Luckily the semester ends at the end of April, so it isn't that much further to go, and I made it halfway across the next long row (including a mistake which I caught early). The numbers here are very delicate but I have been watching and counting carefully.

I very nearly ROFLed for real, Erin. I never before thought of numbers as being delicate. Now I have a whole host of images in my head. 1 and 7 are particularly delicate, not having much of a base, and 3 wobbles, since it's incomplete. 8. on the other hand is the sturdiest number of all, being complete all round. 5 and 6 tend to totter, along with 8 at times, and poor 0 simply rolls round and round in an aimless meander. Of course, if they all get together in clusters, there is a bit more substance, but alone, they are all quite flimsy, eh? Oh my. The possibilities this presents. I'm quite overwhelmed.

For me, in smaller pieces, if I make a mistake. I can make a small modification and not have to fix it. Here, so much depends on the count being perfect, a small error can multiply. But I can see how delicacy can travel in other designs and counts.

Oh @Lynn,
Now you've got me laughing at this in my head. Thanks, I needed that today.
