Off the Shuttle: Hanky Edging - Rings and Chains

 I have finally completed my first hanky edging.  I only tatted on it at my granddaughter's softball games, doctor visits, etc. so as you can imagine, it took me quite some time to finish it.

I used size 40 Lizbeth thread in white.  I made it in white so I can use it in reenacting.  It's just a simple rings and chains edging that was attached to the hanky as I went.  It's actually the foundation row of a two row edging for a long table runner.  Because the table runner was rectangular and my hanky was square, I don't think the count really worked out very well at the corners.  I won't be adding row 2.
