Last night I took an online class through a yahoo group I belong to on cluny tatting. The class concentrated on making the cluny using a loom. Today I watched a video today on using your hand as the loom. I like that method so much better. Here is my first attempt at making the cluny stitch. I don't know if this counts as a motif for the 25 motif challenge or not. Since I eventually want to get into tatting flowers, I need to practice this technique since it's used in leaves a lot. It's real easy to get out of rhythm if you allow your mind to wander.
In order to take the photo so that the cluny is more visible, I had to learn the setting on my camera. So, without further ado, here are 2 clunies. I used size 10 Coat's crochet thread.
