Thanks to the generosity of my friend Clyde for introducing me to this thread from Craft Supplies Ltd. in New Zealand. It is color #1204 size 50. All of you know I prefer size 20 thread. He wanted me to try the size 50 in DHT to see how much stronger it is and easier with which to tat. He was right. I love it! It is very smooth, doesn't twist and knot up and I didn't break it one single time. He also sent me some in another color. I know he tatted a doily with this one I just used. I'm not sure about the other one. Now, I won't have to be afraid of the smaller thread from Yarnplayer and Lady Shuttle Maker.
The pattern is from Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson's book "Tatting Patterns and Designs."
There are so many things I want to do. I finished a baby hat yesterday, but it is too small. I have downloaded another pattern this morning to try. Diane and I are working on a new idea, (her's), that I think you will all like, but no clues. And I have so many different colors of HDT that I want to tat with. So little time...
Back to my projects. And, I probably need to find something to cook for DH.
