I am blessed with the announcement of two more grand babies

Both daughter in law and daughter
February and April 
will find out gender soon!
So gonna do some tatting for babies, start with girl socks!
So baby socks to start with!

 I have a few tips for adding lace to any sock back in the 80's I did this to my own!
take the sock and give it a stretch and measure the times 2 
If you do not, will not go around your foot! most important!



 Just side note beads were put on as I tatted not on shuttle!
Find a cup or jar that closely measures (falling under length little bit) make your lace and connect it.
Then sew it on sock! hide thread in the knitted part.  
Don't worry got a cool Idea for tatting for a little boy! coming soon!
 Oh yes so you all are not worried Diane sent the thread and it done and fits on a bag I love it!

  5. Congratulations! February and April will give you plenty of time to tat baby goodies. I love adding tatting to baby socks... haven't done it for a while, but Christmas is coming, so maybe now is the time!

    I'm glad the thread arrived safely, otherwise that pretty little sunflower would be incomplete.

  11. In the first picture it looks as though you have tatted a length of the lace and are going to cut the right amount? - how do you do that?
    It's so pretty, and I am dying to see the boy lace.

  12. Oh I see what you mean, I measured the sock tatted it at 8 inches before picture was taken. I even connected it together.
    If you had some tatting (and don't know how to tat) that needed to be cut, you could try one of two things. A sewing machine and zigzag(with stitches close together on machine)with a piece of interfacing behind the tatting, Sew straight down and carefully cut the facing close to zigzag. the other would be whip stitch all cut ends. If you tat a lot, I would cut the tatting a little longer than the measurement and untie it to where I could retie it at right measurement.
