Tatted Edging

What is the thinnest thread you have ever tatted? I wanted a piece of tatting to embellish a small piece of stitching. I started out making a piece of lace out of button and craft thread. When I held it up to the article it was to embellish I decided it was just to big. Button and craft thread too big?  What other choice would I have?  I finally decided to try the thread that I was using to construct my needlebook. It matched the needlebook perfectly but was oh so small. After my third attempt I was able to complete this piece.

Tatted edge using Gutterman Silk Sewing Thread.

To date this is the smallest thread I have ever tatted, how about you?
