I hate making edgings. They are so tedious. After about the fourth repeat, I'm bored and want to throw my shuttles across the room. However, I have a need for a rather long strip of tatting-- 46 inches, to be exact.
I only wonder how people used to do things like this before Netflix, because if I couldn't stream movies, I would not be doing this.
The pattern is Edging No. 36 from the book Tatting with Anne Orr. I'm doing it in size 20 to make it go faster, and also because I don't want it any narrower than it is.
What on earth do I need 46 inches of tatting for? You'll see....
