Tatting Tea Tuesday

I can't believe it. I am actually posting on Tatting Tea Tuesday. I have high hopes of posting each Tuesday. However, since school started I have not had the time to tat, post, or read about tatting, posting, etc. Here are some socks trimmed with tatting I made a while back. I used variegated Flora size 20 and irridescent beads. The pattern was adapted from #30 in A New Twist on Tatting by Catherine Austin. I used round 1 from the pattern and then for round 2, I tatted a chain of 5d bead 5d. These were given to a very special friend--she loves them.

OOHHH, the socks are too cute!!! The beads are a perfect addition to the edging you used. I also like the varigated color you used, very pretty!!

Such darling lil' frills on the socks! What a great adaptation. You're a pro! Was it tricky to attach the tatting to the edge of the sock?
