    Thanks for doing this, Norm! I've wondered for years what a lot of these patterns looked like, but haven't taken the time to tie them all up myself. It's great to have illustrations with your excellent handiwork and photography.

    My take on a grey ghost. I didn't have the topping or jungle cock so I improvised. I used guinea fowl for the eyes.

    Optic - Black

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
