It is growing and beginning to take shape!! I now have 35 large Rings and 28 small rings. It takes 1 hour to make one large ring. The DMC pattern is All Rings and I made modern day changes so there are less threads to tie in. It all starts with a small ring of 4 petals not connected. The small ring connects to the larger rings and it is also the start of the outside large ring of 12 using SSSR. For more information on the SSSR you can read about it on the June 2 post.
The vest is on top of a rug I had woven back in the 70's.
Why Shuttles?? I recently purchased the "fake Mexico" Aero and very disappointed. It is NOT USABLE. The hook is on the side where you pass through the threads, it is not on the side where the bobbin goes. If anyone does not want their German Aero I will gladly take it!! The new Aerlits are nice but slightly bigger and does not fit in my hands as the Aero does.
