. . . is a real feat for me. I haven't tatted with such small thread before, but I really wanted to use this beautiful turquoise thread on this hanky because it matches so well. I was thinking I really wanted to find a pretty edging that wasn't just a simple ring and chain. Then I re-thought about that, and after considering my lack of experience with such small thread, I decided to go with a fairly simple edging from one of my favorite books - Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns. This is the Clover edging on page 36.
Size 70 thread is so dainty looking when tatted - but I don't know how I would ever pick out a mistake. I can barely see the stitches, but I think I can tell that the more I tat with this size, the more comfortable it will be. And it's even MORE portable than usual.
This edging is going to take me awhile . . .
