This is made using my Viola pattern. I made one in black for myself sometime ago and it does look really pretty as a necklace.
In other news... I won threads from Handy Hands! I was so delighted! It's awfully hard to choose though: so many great colours and in different sizes too. The colour suggestion I had made was for a variegated orange (autumn and pumpkins are just around the corner) but someone had already suggested a variegated orange. Lucky for me, they still used one of the oranges from my collection to make a solid: Coral Orange Med. I wasn't sure if I'd like it on its own but I do; it's not as pinky as the name suggests and a really nice orange which will be great to use for autumn tatting (it's the one in the bottom right hand corner in the photo).
I think Barb's ongoing colour competition is incredibly generous and I'm always amazed that they keep bringing out new colours. It's an amazing range of shades and a thread I really enjoy using.
