Introduction to the TIAS

I've just added the introduction to the TIAS on the web site. I hope many of you will have the courage to join me again in my rather ridiculous little game!!!! 

For those who haven't heard about this game before - it's simply a pattern which is 'chopped up' into small parts and each part is given out every few days. The fun part is that you don't know what you're making. Guesses, pictures and anything goes in the four to six weeks that it takes to complete the uploading of the links. There is no time limit and there are no rules either - except I ask you to make it as fun as possible. 

If you need help at any point please ask although I can't help needle tatters. Before I forget - I'd better let you know where the introduction can be found. Here's the link.  There are also links on  Riet's blog to her translation (Dutch) and Julie's translation is here (French).  Julie's link maybe wrong but I'll update it when I see it appear!!!  I'm also putting links on the side of the TIAS blog too.  My thanks go to these two for all their hard work on this and the upcoming game.  They will be translating all the TIAS as it happens.

Just to pretty up the blog post - here are a few pictures of past Tat It And See games.

Hmmm. Variegated thread and a bead... and it's in 2 parts... I've got to wait over a month to start!!! I'm going to write to Santa and request a time machine!!! Vbg

Anyway... I'll start the guessing because this year I'm going to get my Elephants Foot Umbrella Stand! Efus for short! Rofl

Very clever of you to start with pictures of the two I actually managed to finish! Bring on the challenge!

I was just wondering a day or two ago when it would be time for a new TIAS! What fun! My friends in the office enjoyed watching my project develop last time (my first), so I'm sure they'll be glad to know it's just over a month away again--a week and a half before my son's wedding! And I'm excited to get to use one of my favorite threads--Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy (or, as I prefer to think of it, Rainbow Sherbet), which always makes me feel happy when I look at its cheery pastel shades. I'm ready to enjoy a new project with my tatting friends the world over. Let the fun begin!

Marla said...

Yeah!!!!! And so much time to pick threads, change my mind, pick other threads, change my mind, pick different threads, change my kind again.... oh dear! I wonder what it will be!!! Oh, maybe a "Bee"! .... but then again, maybe not! ��

Joy said...

Jane Eborall said...

Ah, that goat! I had been tatting for two months or maybe less when I attempted it. It was my very first SCMR! And, of course, it was the first time I corresponded with you, Jane! Good memories... :-)
