I've been on a tatting kick lately. When I ordered a catalog from handyhands, it came with a free sample of tatting thread in color 139 - Fruit Fizz. I had never, ever tatted or crocheted in a variegated thread before. I was always afraid it would look weird or something. But hey... free tatting thread?! So I wound a shuttle and tatted up a quick little medallion. And then another! And I still have thread left over... But I needed my shuttle for another project. At any rate, I ended up loving the effect from the variegated thread so much that I ordered 4 balls in different colors.

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

Yep! I am pretty much addicted to tatting with variegated thread, now... I have got so many lush color combos in my tatting box now. Can't wait to start another project!

Very pretty. I never thought of using variegated thread for tatting but it has turned out really well.

Just beautiful - do you starch them or do they hold their shape without modification?

Thanks, everyone!

I did starch them lightly, but it probably wasn't necessary.

I find that depends a lot on your thread and erhm.. violent tendencies Tongue If you tighten your tatting "a bit too much" they can be incredibly stiff.
