"Avital! I would so love to see the animations if you ever could find time. I am in Oya up to my chin. :) You are so good at this animation. I too have found some videos they go L>R with a straight return. Some flip the work and go back and forth.…"

I only did tiny scraps in class. I kept cutting them off, and starting again, and I did not finish anything!!
However, I was more concerned to learn the techniques, than getting good even work - I can sit and do that at home. In class I was just concerned to get the Idea of the raised stitch, and the large loop centres, and also the chain start for an oval shape. I wound up with a lot of scraps of loops and knots, and nothing much bigger than a thumb nail with ends!!!
Still, - now I have more confidence, and can understand what the book is saying, - and I plan to go ahead, and do a Large piece (like the photo in the book!!!) I always jump in the deep end, and flounder!!! :)

Jessica
Welcome. Please go to our MAIN page and read the NOTES titled WHAT THE FEATURES ARE FOR (it explains how the software for the site works) and LACES INCLUDED (it explains the territory covered by our group).

If you have trouble using the software, contact me and I'll try to help.

We do have a group for discussion of Oya and Puncetto. We have a few members who are doing one or the other. You might want to join that group, post photos of your work, and join the conversation.
