I agreed when Maureen commented that dark green would work. Unfortunately, colour choices have become so restricted that the suggestion was simply not an option. I had only medium green and not much of that. But, so far, so good:
Midway through this tat, while tatting
the yellow row, I re-discovered something.
My thumbs are very sore, resulting from use of #40 Lizbeth, which is a rough thread compared to softer threads on my shuttles. They both have a tiny split at the tip which when rubbed tends to open and - gasp - bleed on my work!
In desperation, when I saw this had happened the first time, I stuck my tongue on the spot and my impulse was fortunate; enzymes in the blood immedietely removed the offending splotch!
Drooling whilst tatting shall henceforth be allowed,
even appreciated, forthwith.
