Another niece on the way....YAY!


Every sibling's first child gets something extra special from me. My newest upcoming niece will be getting this baby afghan with tatting. Everything is carefully sewn on with invisible thread. I love that stuff but I have really started to notice that my eyesight is not what it used to be.
I have a tatting book somewhere that has tatted letters in it but I couldn't find it so I had to "wing" these letters on my own. Does anyone happen to know which tatting books contain letters and numbers?

The Complete Book of Tatting by Rebecca Jones has letters in it - don't know if that's the one you meant though.

Tatting ABC's and 123's - the Handy Hands book - it's great!

Fiddle some other book with letters, yours look good to me!

That's a gorgeous butterfly!!! And I think you did fantastic with 'winging it' on the letters too! :-P

"Tatting Patterns" by Julia E. Sanders also has letters (Page 30). :-)
