I've used a little more of ladyshuttlemaker's "Icicle" hand dyed thread to make motif number 10 in the 25 motif tatting challenge. This thread is lovely to tat with, very smooth and very tightly wound so that the stitches slide easily and the stitches all look neat and crisp. I'm a convert - I see more exciting threads in my future. The snowflake is the "Ribbon Snowflake" from Vida Sunderman's Tatted Snowflakes. It measures about 2 inches across.
