I ordered two balls of#40 Lizbeth. Yes indeed. New thread. In the meantime, I had some #40 left from the winter projects:
It's a small one -only about 2"; Karey Solomon's pattern and fun to tat.
My tension is good, the picots smaller, and I enjoyed the experience of concentrating on a very small project, thus being able to be more of a perfectionist.
Working for months on a big pattern can wear be a bit tiresome and I think my technique suffers as a result. This was fun. :)
