"Blanket stitch and buttonhole stitch are basically the same.  It is called blanket stitch when the stitches are spaced out, but it is called buttonhole stitch when they are very close together."

I have been tatting for 23 years. Today I started puncetto and did a small square. It was messy, but I was doing it in the car from memory. Now I have all my books out, several pages printed from the internet, and ready to give it a real try.

Your very welcome. Try to keep it simple and large until, you get used to the stitch direction and tension. When it feels more natural, then its time to try your hand at something more challenging. Hope it works out for you this time.

Hi Shirl, I saw you first attemps, its realy not thar bad. If your having problems finding the last stich, you realy have to count how many you have already done and what you started with. you could also put a pin or thread in your last stich as you are making it. Coiless safty pins work well. remeber to count the straight part of the stich, not the bump. If your have problems let me know, I will try to help make it easier for you.

I wrote a comment on your booklace1 on stitchinfingers. But here in this group it is a borderline kind of subject. So please remove it. Putting a link to it on your blog is perfectly fine, or a link to your photos on stitchinfingers is also fine. I'm trying to keep this network on topic.
