Cannot wait to show you! But not yet...
Then: Anchora Away!
This is the thread I ended up with from the Finca store that has nothing for me anymore as there is only Finca #8, which is much to bulky.
Apparently no one buys the #12, so the owner is phasing out all the thin stuff, and there is no more selection. : (
She did have this one lone, yellow ball of #20 Ancrora from Portugal and another in beige. I bought them both, as this is finer than a Lizbeth #20 and I could not resist. The yellow is currently in use for the heraldic hanky. I will post my progress on that in a few days.
I believe I have settled on a pattern, and this is the thread which seems to work, strange as it may seem: yellow!
I did try another pattern in the Daiso #40 thread, but it is way too heavy for the silk. Pretty pattern however from the Handkerchief Pattern book:
Actually, I believe I have tatted this once before. It seemed very familiar and I recall the JKs.
