I particularly like this neutral olive green. goes with so many things, it's Lizbeth...the newest olive green that they put out.
I hear that Palmetto is right around the corner, so remember to find my Mom and say hello! I may have mentioned it already, but she has made herself a button/badge with Dr. Vonthreadmore's picture (the one currently in the sidebar) so she can be easily identified by my online pals. That's right, all of you lucky bumkins that get to go the tatter's disneyland,...err, I mean Palmetto Tat Days.

I have been making jewelry for many years, so my eye leans as much toward jewelry design as it does toward lace design. Also, ETSY has lately become more saturated with tatted jewelry makers. Much of the other lace jewlery available there is very traditionally based or victorian, and I try to maintain my more modern or contemporary asthetic generally. Bright colors and the use of different medium within the tatting keeps my work original and unique I hope.

Newest Hand dyed thread is in the etsy shop! Meet our interpretation of the transitional colors between summer and fall, with a dose of renaissance faire :-)
You can see the threads here, also, check the bargain category for size 10. The color separated on the batch of 10 more than I had wanted, so it's discounted.

Anyway, I need opinions on whether or not we like this earring (or if I should make another one)
I think it perhaps needs a little more embellishment, and as I am now writing this, I think I have an idea that might do quite well.

It actually coordinates perfectly with my soft blankie that was another happy place purchase. It must be destiny.
And thanks to my snarky commenters for the days worth of entertainment, here is the contact info for the tatting shuttle sock vendor firstname.lastname@example.org
You'll probably need to email her for a picture of the available colors, there are a few other tatting design socks, as well as some bobbin lace socks if that is your thing. $8 a pair is what they were going for at the conference. They don't have an online store, but they do mail order.

It's ok. Sock envy is appropriate in this situation. And, if you can be the bigger person and admit your covetous need for such socks.....I might be willing to provide you with the contact information to the vendor from whom I aquired the socks at IOLI.
That is all I have to say.
