What materials did you use? Size 70 white tatting thread and aqua Delica-type beads

What are you most proud of? That I finished! The scarf is 70" by 12" so that's 164 inches of beaded edging on some tiny thread. After several starts and stops over a couple of years, I decided that this would be the year I got the project finished. So happy it's all done!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think about how committed you are to a large, very repetitious tatting project before you start. Also, make sure you have enough thread to complete the project. I was using vintage thread and kept running out and having to find brands that matched. If I were to do this again, I would buy new, readily-available thread to insure that I'd have enough to finish.

Stunning! The tatted edging really makes this scarf art-to-wear.
