Isn't this the best?
I think Diane is trying to direct my tatting time for the next year or so, as this hankie is really BIG! I fear for your ears as I grumble and mutter my way through the edging! Just a little warning of things to come!
Since I stabbed myself admirably with the Clover shuttle, I have been using my lovely LaCossette bobbin shuttles exclusively. I adore them, but I need to un-tat so often and I am frustrated using the half- Clover that I thought was such a good idea to have on-hand to undo the knots.
The hook on the end of the Aero is too big, and I cannot find a suitable straight pin. What do YOU use to unpick when you use a bobbin shuttle?
Your Opinion, Please.
I was not planning to tat this right away, but I am inspired by the hankie and one must not argue with The Muse. So, I have begun to tat the BIG HANKIE though I am not quite finished with the one Michelle sent me - I have only about FIVE repeats remaining!
I might end up having to drop the "Serial Tatter" moniker if I have too many things on the go!
What do you think?
This is a Mary Konior edging and the plain ( though slightly variegated) thread is DMC #80 and the one with green is about#80, one of the Valdani threads my sis sent me a while back.
I know which one I prefer, bit am not sure of my judgement here. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Also, and very importantly, I am not certain if I shall have enough of the DMC thread. This is not a full ball and I do not know much is on there. There is lots of the Valdani. The hankie is about 13" square.
