Greetings to you all!
I made a few decisions.
1. The length of the 'edge without a cause' has been determined. It's as long as it's going to get. Not exactly sure in this moment how long that is...but, It's near 4 feet long
2. The combined patterns look like the following...
3. After I finish this edge over the next week and 1/2, I need to take a break.
Embarrassingly, I have tendonitis as a result of tatting.....geesh!
That's a tough one for a guy to admit in public. Therefore, if anyone asks....I got it from heavy lifting in the gym. :-)
I actually do go to the gym frequently and will be working on the strength of my forearms in order to counteract the movement of tatting. Hopefully, I'll be able to tat and strengthen the forearm. Until then.... watch my back....no, really, it's a gym injury.
Have a wonderful day and happy tatting!!
