"Hi Elizabeth. I am pretty sure the needle you have been asked about is used for actually making fine net. Filet lace by the Sea... have photos of them but don't seem to have them available.
Pleased to see you are still doing Filet, I do…"
"Going around the 4 petalled flowers Twice is a good idea. That makes them nice and firm around the edge, and looks great.That figure of 8 stitch as a small border is very nice, too. Hmm!! You are giving me Lots of ideas!!!!! :)"
"Lacis sell reproductions of some old Filet Books - I think they were originally French, from around 1929 era. I have seen some "Originals", and I have one of the Lacis reprints. A friend bought a couple of them, and did not want this…"
This piece is just amazing! I hope one day to be this good. I am experimenting with a much smaller piece for my first one. I was more amazed about how hard it is to find netting that is not synthetic. I finally found some cotton but boy is it expensive.

Don't respond to that friend request by princess. She is a hacker who has tried to infiltrate at least 4 times. I no longer think she is a spammer, as I did at first, but something worse and more destructive. Thanks for telling me about the problem.
I think filet-Burato does fit. After all, the embroidery stitches which decorate the fabric are the same, and nowadays most people who do filet lacis use a purchased net. Human creativity invents so many borderline categories, it drives me nuts. Do post some photos of your work.
