Back to the "Lucky Clover" doily: I started again with a different color. This is Sulky Cotton Blendables #12-wt, color 4015. I like it much, much better in this color.

Ever wonder just how much thread we use? Sounds crazy, but I've been wondering about that today. My spools of Sulky #12-wt are all 330 yards (300 meters).  A 330-yard spool goes a long way.  If a person used 5 1/3 whole spools of it, that would be about one mile of thread.  That would be a tremendous amout of tatting!

Interesting negative spaces. Yes, good to know how much tatting a spool will produce. Or allow perhaps.
