My first cluny barely had any shape and was so little! I'm a very tight tatter/knitter etc. so it was barely a quarter of an inch long! On my second attempt I pulled the wrong thread first, so I was stuck with a giant loop coming out the top. Ah, Well, nobody said the beginnings would be pretty!
Now that I have practiced some and feel a little more confident, I started a pattern this morning. I chose my green and purple 'Lizbeth threads and I have to say that it's coming along pretty well. After doing more and more clunys (Ok, does 'clunys' end with a 'ys' or 'ies'??) I'm starting to get the feel for them and like doing them A LOT!! So I'm going to find a couple more patterns that have clunys in them and give it a whirl. They say that practice makes perfect, so I'll dive in and see where this cluny adventure takes me!
