Almost a true Ice Drop

I love to see through things especially with tatting!!! :)
 This one has the "gem" I was trying to work with 
 I had to drastically change stitch count and ended up 
with the back rings 8-8-8-8 chains 10-10, the front 
rings are 10-10-10, and the chains are 14.  And, if 
you didn't notice, there are only 5 rings and chains.
And here it is so you can see the Lizbeth Peacock 
Blues better.  Oh, and remember, I used size 40(my 
preferred size).
Have a happy tatting day!!!  :)

It looks beautiful! My preferred size is 80, but I haven't fiddled around with it for Ice Drops. I think it would be too fine. I should pull out some size 40, though. I think it might work well for some of my flatter gems.

Thank you both!! :)
Diane, I agree about the size 80, but I would love to see what you do with size 40!! :)

My perfered size is 20, I have some 40 and 60 but I afraid 80 is beyond my eyes, while I had all the treatment for cancer in my eye and the treatment last year for the side effects even size 20 was hard work.
Great ice drop

Thank you Margaret!! :)
It almost seems as if 20 is a normally preferred size when reading other blogs and seeing how many people use it. :)
