Hanky Edging Completed

Here it is, the handkerchief with the one-shuttle edging (pattern on my Patterns page).
It's been all wrapped up and given away already.

Best wishes,

New Gift Hanky

Someone has a special birthday coming up and she likes pinks so I'm making the one-shuttle edging again (see link on the pattern page).  I didn't have a lot of time and this seemed a reasonably quick pattern to make.  The colour of the hanky is an unusual shade of pink but I found I was able perfectly to match it with Lizbeth's Shell Pink Lt.

I started work with one of my usual favourite shuttles...
but then found that because all the thread is coming from one shuttle only
I was having to refill too often so I opted for the larger Starlit
(I added a hook to mine for efficiency when making joins)

I now hope I'll be able to complete the whole edging without having to refill again.

Back to tatting!  I need to get this finished soon.

Best wishes,
