vintage thread

One of my aunts - you know I've got some... - gave me a dmc ball size 100, I've nice memories of her using that size for crochetting a collar, many years ago, I think about 40. Everything could be magic with that size of thread!



At page 12 of Priscilla Tatting Book #1 (1909), there is a beautiful edging, picture 30, I felt the urge to try it out with the tiny size 100 thread. I feel myself very vintage now!!

    Thank you everyone for these nice words of encouragement.
    Cornelia: yes, it's a beautiful challenge!
    Muskaan: it's far, but size 100 is thicker than this: http://ninettacaruso.blogspot.it/2015/03/contagious.html
