New Doily

I thought I would be ready to post the first picture of the new doily I am tatting by tonight, but I'm not quite there. I am trying to be so careful not to make a mistake with my precious thread! I am supposed to be knitting baby caps for the hospital, but I am being selfish and tatting instead. Shame on me! Actually, the thread with which I was knitting is so stiff and rough it wouldn't be fit for a baby. I don't know where I am going to find patriotic red and blue baby thread. White is no problem, of course. If any of you know where I can find this, please let me know. In the meantime, I guess I will be forced to go on tatting!

Oh Laura, it must be just horrible to have to tat. Just kidding, enjoy the hand dyed thread.

Laura, my Purl & Chain Gang (knitting and crochet group) made patriotic baby hats and blankets out of Red Heart one year. Once they were washed, they were fine. I like Red Heart's cotton blend, and it's finer than their worsted weight. My daughter Joanne's favorite is Caron's Simply Soft.

Clyde, it is horrible, just horrible! I can hardly stand it, so I have to sit down. I am enjoying the thread very much.
Thanks for the tips Diane.l I'll check on the cotton blend and the Caron's Simply Soft.
