For those who may be wondering when I talk about thread size, the higher the number is, the smaller the thread. Size 80 is one of the traditional thread sizes when it comes to tatting and makes the finished piece look daintier.
Anyway, I tatted using size 80 thread for the first time a few days ago.

It was just a simple pattern of chains joined to a key broach, but I quite enjoyed the experience. Size 80 is much finer then the size ten I normally use, but it was really fun to tat with. I'm eager to think of another pattern that I can tat with size 80.
Don't be afraid to try something new!
