Tatted Lobster from Jane's pattern

This was such a fun little project! I am enjoying the block tatting more and more. Everything was smooth as silk until I got to the claws and feelers. I was just reading the written instructions and not looking at the chart and didn't make the picots big enough for claws. I also don't seem to have enough thread to tat the feelers. (Or whatever they are called.) I think I will tie off the threads that are there and join new threads so I can do it right. I don't mind finger tatting, but have to have enough thread to do it!

I am going to put him on my animal jacket for Isaac. Thanks again to Jane for another wonderful pattern. There is a link to her patterns on this page.

He is 4" tip of tail to end of claws and 3 1/2" wide. I think he is so cute!

So cute! I love lobster, but can't eat it any more... maybe I should tat a few whenever I get a shell fish craving!
