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,


  1. So pretty and a perfect match. It’ll make a lovely gift.

  2. Danke Joelle für Zeigen. Das Tuch wird bestimmt wunderschön

  3. Beautiful fabric and edging.

  4. Perfect edging, I love the colour and will go well with the hanky
