People usually ask how long something took me to make, and I never know just how much time I've put into a tatted item or a quilt. So this time I decided I'm going to keep track. This may not be a great idea, as I am a s l o w tatter! But it will be interesting to see the number of hours it takes me to complete a doily. And it will also be very clear why I struggle with finishing anything of size.
Round 1 took me 2 hours and 5 minutes. Each of 2 times. (This is not a good sign.) I made it a second time because I saw an error near the end of the round on the first one. I didn't want to start out with a goof right off the bat and right in the center! Don't tell me if you see any errors in the second one - I am feeling pretty confident at this point.
Round 2 took me a whopping 3 hours and 5 minutes. Just once though - thankfully. A little advice from Fox helped me get started, after having several conversations with myself as to the best way to start so the end of the round would come out correctly. Maybe working on this doily will help me to 'see' some things on a diagram that always seem frustrating without written direction.
I sure hope I can keep up as these rounds get bigger!
