not without a hitch

The adventure with the large doily finished, I enjoyed tatting it even if I had hitches in the process: bits of thread not twisted, oversights, ...
... and what a bitter pill to swallow that the last two rings of the very last wheel needed some more thread than that on the shuttle!
The adventure started in middle January:

Then, when I reached the wheels' round, I found that I had wrongly read the pattern, but I went on, considering that would not a big fault, anyway:

After a month later I suspended it because I run out the multicoloured thread. I had to wait till October, when Fox rescued me with a new fresh ball ( and I still have some left over for another little project.

Diameter is 30.5 cm.

It already found a new home, my mum loves it!
