An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Edgings 94 and 95 use 'Victorian sets' of 4 first half stitches followed by 4 second half stitches. I've used sets before, especially from the Julia Sanders tatting book, but just on the chains. I've never tatted a piece entirely in sets. One problem is that this tatting has a more definite right and wrong side than normal tatting and the chains face a different way to the rings. I like the contrast you get when using sets just on the chains. This way looks rather 'spiky' to me.
