I had been tatting a bedspread for a bed, just rings and chains, but did not like the thread I was using. it was Venus, nr. 80, but kept knotting, and twisting on itself. The same thickness is made by DMC, or Anchor, or Lizbeth, all these threads tat nicely, and don't knot when they are not supposed to. I binned the one I was working on, even with it being half finished.
Decided on a nice pattern, and started.
This is the result of an evening of tatting.
That was a week ago. I have been tatting every free moment. And this the result:
Just a few rows more, it needs to hang over the bed.
There is no bedding underneath at the moment.
Then comes the problem of deciding what color to use for the lining!
