Psychedelic Soft Boomerang tatted earrings


Usually I shy away from multicolored threads when I want the unusual shape of the item to be the main focus, but I'm pleased with how these turned out. I used my hand dyed "Summer Trail" to make them.

Very nice! You even matched where the colors come in!

The earrings look great in Summer Trail! I still love that thread color, and could just kick myself for using it all on a doily when it would have been prettier as an accent.

Both thread and pattern are very nice. The result is simply gorgeous !

That thread looks great in that design. I really admire how carefully you plan your thread so that the two pieces are so closely matched. I've noticed that in other pieces you've tatted as well.

I like the way it turnes out. Must have had some calculations involved to get the colours to match each other like that.

Oh, how beautiful! I love your craft. It's so unusual and every piece I've seen just flows. Your colored threads are to die for.

Thank you all very much!
To get them to match, I just sort of took note of where in the color progression I had started on the first one, and tried to start the 2nd one at the same color...and got lucky, I guess! It might not work the next time :)

Lovely! I LOVE the colors and the way you matched them. Is the pattern for sale someplace?

LindaJo, thank you and I'm glad you like the design. I don't have the pattern written up yet.
