"I have a question about the lasst set of knots, that is close to the edge of the circle.    My directions say to split the 2 strands and make the knot.   Do they mean, knot one of the strands, and skip the other ~or~ do they mean put…"

"Jenny, the directions for the first one have you start by making a group of four in a backward stitch, and keep moving right.   Oddly, when I started the second one, I saw it was looking completely different, but didn't know why.  …"

Tell us more about your lace interests.
Although I dabbled in many crafts, I guess the only one that might qualify as lace, would be the many doilies I've made. I've developed a lot of hand pain, and when I tried tatting, I found it was easier on my thumb than crocheting. I started thinking of all the things you go thru your life, thinking, I'd love to learn that one day... and happened upon some teneriffe patterns/wheels on ebay and bought those, then started thinking of bobbin lace. All this has been very recent, the tatting just started Dec 2015. I do have limited time due to being 24/7 sole caregiver to my stroke husband. That was in 2012, and all my crafts went by the wayside till 2015, when he finally got ok enough that I could start crafting again in 2015, and my craft desires exploded!
