I got this verigated blue, red, purple, and a light mintish green. By the end of the day I had added a six pack of crochet hooks and I was told that I would need Fray Check when starting to work with this thread because it tends to unravel and fray. Then again the person working it was crocheting not tatting with it. Anyone who's tatted with this thread, please send along suggestions of working with it. If you have a blogger and posted pictures of your work, drop me a link. I would love to see how this works up.
This is how far I've gotten along on the fan. Not too bad considering I've been working on this between errands, er, while waiting on people while playing taxi with the new van. I did make a trip to our local swap meet this morning with my mother and older daughter. I came away with four rolls of Omega rayon thread for about $5. I was debating getting it since it's much thicker than what I'm used to working with but the price nudged me to get it. My mother told me that it was a good deal and I could use it for crocheting not just tatting. I opened up one of them and it feels like a tighter wound version of size 10 thread. It definately has a stiffer feel to it than I've ever worked with.
