Overachieving

Our Internet service has been restored (hooray!) and I managed to get another listing up in my Etsy shop.  It's a bracelet and earrings set, tatted in variegated white to light blue thread.  Since the last bracelet I made fit the average person but not my chubby wrists, I decided I would make this one longer.  The curvy design in the pattern didn't lend itself well to measuring and I got carried away.  It ended up being nine inches long (plus the clasp).  I was a little worried, but it actually looks good as kind of a loose and lacy bracelet.  It hangs nicely and feels pretty.  Now I need to get a grip on measurements for average size people.

I wonder if you starched something like that, it might lay flat and make a cool necklace.

It actually lays fairly flat. I pinned it and steamed it. If I had gone on much longer, it could have been a necklace :-)
