Tatting Tuesday - Furnace Replacement

Doesn't look much like tatting, does it?

New Furnace
I scheduled our furnace replacement starting yesterday, for some crazy reason. With all the disruption that caused, I didn't get any tatting done :( . And the installation will continue today, so I probably won't get any done today, either.

Also, my lovely wife has decided that I started learning to crochet with too hard a pattern.  Apparently I don't even know what I don't know.  So I am switching to a beginner granny square pattern, and getting personal instruction on how to do it right.  First lesson: don't try to make it so tight!  Hopefully, I will soon be able to crank out a granny square quickly, and can think about what to make with them (an afghan, or maybe a scarf).

If your tension is too tight also try a larger hook.

Oh swooze, he had a deathgrip on the hook and was pulling the thread so tight it was screaming for mercy! Lol we had already moved to a hook two sizes larger. He improved right away when I assured him that it was not a contest of strength.

Too bad the installation caused some delays on your tatting, but I’m sure it was for the best. Anyway, how is the furnace doing nowadays? I hope it has been performing well, so far. Thanks for sharing that, Susan! All the best to you!
