What Was Stopping Me? Was The Start!

To replicate this is tricky and from the start, wow!
This little beauty is called "Pinecones" from the book called
Tatting Adventure by Ben Fikkert I also wanted to reduce it to one knot instead of two and not cut ends like above.

After about three of these I was successful and pinned out with my hairspray trick below.



Finally passed that hurdle
I have wanted to try is for years and so glad to make it to this point :)
Now I can calm down and have at least two projects going at same time, at least:)
