Well ........

This is the reason for the 'new' type of join which I've called the double continuous thread join and which can be found here

Months and months ago (yes, I'm a BAD grandma!) one of my grandkids asked me to make him a shark!!!  I thought and thought about this but couldn't get my teeth into it (very bad pun time) until I was sitting in Cincinnati one day and decided to do what I do best 'take a run at it' with shuttles loaded and brain cell 3 rested and ready!!!!

I'm really pleased with the teeth - aren't they fearsome?  The name of this pattern?  Nathan's Shark!!!

I hope to get this onto the pattern page over the next few days.  I'll let you know when it's ready.  

It's hard to think of 'boy' things to design and I reckon Nathan's idea could be one which will appeal to little boys.  

Further suggestions always welcome.


  1. Jane, your ( I mean Nathan's ) shark is very well done!
    It's really "sharky".

  2. Oh Jane, Nathans shark looks lovely and so real like. sorry I have not replied to your e-mail I will do so hopefully later.

  3. I love the way your #3 works!!

  4. Very cool! I'm sure my grandson Aidan would love one of these critters!

  5. I think this is one nice and lacy shark. Hmmm, is it really necessary for a shark to look ferocious? I don't think so. I like it.

  6. He's fantastic Jane!! Your teeth are fearsome! You really nailed the teeth! Love it!!

  7. My shark-lovin' son has already begged for me to make him one!

    I am in the process of making him a dragon and he threw it over in favor of your (Nathan's) new shark!

    I can't think of a higher compliment than that of an excited 4 y.o. boy. Well done!

  8. Thanks, folks. There's nothing like a four year old to know it's own mind, Isdihara!!!! Like Nathan who couldn't be weaned away from the shark idea!!!!
