Jon Yusoff's Quantiesque Snowflake again -- but this time with a twist in the chains leading to the outer clovers. I had to make the chains almost double length to do the cross-over for the twist, and I think they should have been still a bit longer. This twist makes the outer edge look more round with sticky-outy things. The original version has a nicer flow, but I think this is interesting. I used size 80 DMC tatting cotton in red and green, but to get it to shine added one strand of white rayon machine embroidery thread. I made another one with a green center and outer round but, somehow, got the twists backward on a couple of the ends. It looks odd, so I'm not showing it off.
Tatting while listening to audio books is what I call relaxation. I get home from work, get dinner out of the way, then park myself in my favorite chair. I pick up my lap desk covered with shuttles, patterns, strings and beads, stick the earbuds in and say, "Checking out!" Nobody bothers me then -- until it's time to go ride the stationary bike, that is.
