What are you most proud of? It actually is recognizable as an atom (it's the element Lithium).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a tricky design to tat, but fun for experienced tatters. The techniques that I used are covered in my Craftsy Shuttle Tatting course. The only thing really different about this design is that 6 shuttles are used.

Thanks, it's in eBook format here on Craftsy. I also have printed books available in my Etsy shop.

Glad you like it! I think "science-y" designs are fun, even though I don't know much science :)

Neat! Every science teacher should have one!

I have such trouble with shuttle tatting! You do such a beautiful job. I just love this atom design and the color you did it in!

Well, shuttle tatting gets easier over time, but this atom design still gives me some trouble, too. I figure the results are worth it :)

I didn't realise this was a specific atom! That's fantastic :D soooo something I would do, lol :)

For sure you could do it, flootzavut, and most likely improve on the design!

Don't know about that! Will definitely try at some point, though :) I made an iPhone cozy for my brother embroidered with the chemical symbol for an amino acid embroidered on it a couple of years ago. I love nerdy crafting!! :D
