No Knitting here folks

Asalam Alaikum,
A couple of days ago, instead of knitting I was brushing up one of my lesser used hobbies. Shuttle tatting, my mom learned when I was maybe 10 or so and I picked up a bit from her. I never really used it for anything or completed anything except the odd butterfly or two. Recently I have been lurking in a tatters group on Ravelry and I was fascinated by the dragon challenge, so I pulled out my shuttles and got to work practicing so that I will be able to make one of these.

Here is a picture of my practice pieces.
