Though the colours are great, I found that after using only #40 or smaller lately, this thread felt like I was tatting with hemp. My fingers are a mess!
I remember reading a blog post - I believe it was Miranda's - on this very issue, and I have to agree with her; it is awkward to use thicker thread if you are not used to it.
At any rate, all the #20 is finished, my hands are saved and I have a lovely little motif to show for it.
#59 and #60-100 Motif Challenge
Also, I will not use two differing weights together again, as it never usually works well.This motif pulled way too much, as the pink is a #50, so the chains are too short. Live and learn.
Then I tatted another egg, this one in Karey Solomon's HDT #30 Cebelia. I have complained a lot ( oh, how I do LOVE to kvetch!) in the past about Cebelia, but I have come to enjoy tatting with it in the #30 very much. Too bad there are so few nice colours.
