My latest finish ... which I am going to name Pretty Posy
Thread used are "Fern" by Yarnplayer and "ChocoRasberry" by Tatskool both in size 40.
The Pretty Posy was a second attempt. My first tryout of this design is this one below
The thread used is Altin Basak polyester thread.
This is my first time using polyester thread for tatting. It is rather smooth and 'slippery'. The stitches have a tendency of coming undone. I had to pinch them real close, otherwise there will be gaps between the double stitches that appear like very small picots.
The rings close very well if the thread is pulled in the right direction. Let me explain. I read somewhere that for polyester (and maybe silk, too), when you run the thread between the pinch of your thumb and your index finger, it will slide smoothly in one direction and you will feel some roughness if run the opposite way. I don't know if this is true, but that is what I felt when working with this polyester thread. Hopefully, someone who is more knowledgeable will be able to confirm if this is true and give a better explanation.
There are still four more days for you to submit your name for the giveaway draw. Leanna asked if I really want to give away the Primrose Path.
