The little linen square is completed and took quite a lot of the Elefante Algodon Mercer Crochet thread, #80, from Monica.
I had to tat really fast - I always do that if I think I might run out - as if it would do any good!
Thread this thin is callenging and was murder to un-tat, but I love the end result. I have no idea what to do with this seven inch square. But, I like it.
The finished edging was a bit too large for the square - just a tad - so I crocheted another row around the first one around the edges of the square with #50 Cebélia, and it made up for the oversized tatting. Whew!
The pattern is Oaks and Acorns by Mary Konior.
Why, oh why have I chosen to tat with Finca #8 again? I thought I said I would not repeat this! It is really difficult, being only 2-ply, and as I have stated before, reminds me of toilet paper! It separates, twists, knots and does all kinds of things that would make 6-ply tatting thread cringe and run screaming from its shuttle.
But, it has a plush feel once tatted and the colours are pleasing to me.
