Supply list for TIAS #4

Three thread colors:
17 yards (15.5 meters) of a light colored thread
6 yards (5.5 meters) of a medium colored thread
13 yards (12 meters) of a dark colored thread

2 shuttles

1 paperclip.. or some sort of stitch holder

"Tat it and See" is a super fun and interactive tatting experience. It was first started by Jane Eborall. It is a pattern, hosted by a designer, and released to the public "bits" at a time. Everyone who participates tats together and you get to guess along the way what you think you might be tatting. There is a little bit of suspense involved which makes it all the more exciting.
As in past TIAS's you can blog about your progress and/or email me pictures of your progress to be posted on the TIAS website for everyone to watch and enjoy.
Another great thing about TIAS is that if you saw the whole pattern some might be intimidated to tat it, but by seeing and tatting "bite size" pieces at a time, it is fun, easy and conducive to learning new tatting techniques.

I will be dropping hints here and there so make sure to check back often!

Hi Sherry, I'm all in for the T.I.A.S. Choosing my colors, threads and shuttles. Should I use some of my prescious HDT? ummm Do we get 20 questions? Animal? Vegetable? Mineral? Is it bigger than a breadbox? LOL I hope everyone joins in on the fun...

I think I have enough thread to try this one, but I'm not so sure about the shuttles. ;)

Hi sherry! Can't wait to see what our finished TIAS will look like. Thanks for hosting.

I would like to take part in this fun too.
And I have a question if these numbers of yards of threads are correct? They seem to be quite a lot, when I convert them to meters.

Hi Anna, I have included the length you will need in meters.

Everyone, you can ask all the questions you want, but please do not be offended if I choose not to answer them (:
