That short thread is the core thread in those 155 half stitches of course...and, yeah, I did use some "vintage" clarks size 30 thread that is "aged" looking...but I really liked the "antique" look it gave...it matches the book I want to use it in very nicely. So...How would you go about fixing it?
- I could pull a bunch of the half stitches off to get a longer thread, maybe all the way down to the join, tie a new thread on and re-tat those 155 half stitches.
- I could pull out down to the join and sew in there just leaving a single tail.
- I could try to tie on where it is and make a new ring, hiding the short end as I tat the first few stitches of the ring. I think it would be a touch shorter than the other tail though.
- Other ideas I haven't thought of...
