'Love-In-A-Mist'

Here is a 'Plate Mat' tatted from Mary Konior's book: Tatting Patterns. It's worked in Lizbeth thread size 20, in the color of Mountain Breeze. As you notice, I also used my new "Pop-A-Bobbin" shuttle. I love it! This one is made of  Cocobolo Rosewood.

I was not sure how a variegated thread would work with this pattern....but I am happy with the way it came out. It has a swirl effect that I did not notice until the end.

Beautiful! I think the color changes enhance the swirled affect.

Hi Nancy,
I have been eyeing this pattern. Yours tatted up is pretty. I love the mignonette.
I love the colour of Mountain Breeze and just received my Pop-a-bobbin shuttle.
