>pattern 3 and 4 from 111 easy edgings

>I started this one yesterday while I was in meetings at my kids school, getting ready for the new year. In the break times, I worked on this lace. I have lots of this thread; it was a real big ball, so it will be fun to see how long this one gets. Also, on a side note, I am doing all of these laces in roughly size 10 thread and a size 6 hook so I can compare their finished sizes. It’s always hard to see in a book how big or little they are in relation to each other.

I also started and finished edging four. I used an antique pearl cotton for it that only had 65 yards on a ball, so I got about 2 feet of lace. That much lace is still useful for aprons and crazy quilts and things of that sort.

Even though I will be working on number 3 for a while, I may start number 5 today, as well, to give me lots of stuff to work on in the car.

    >I gotta say, you totally blow my mind! I love to crochet, been doing it for 20+years but I rarely do anything in crochet thread. The other day after seeing your beautiful edgings and poppolina’s baby wedding jacket I tried to work some 6stranded floss and a 2mm hook and had fits trying to work it. How do you do such great work on such tiny thread and hooks???Trishhttp://aquadshotyarn.blogspot.com/

    >just takes practice. don’t use stranded embroidery thread to start with you will split the threads start off with size 5 of knit cro-sheen or size 10 crochet thread it will work better also use a size 6 to 4 steel hook. It will be a little easier
