This is what I worked on for my entry in the SC State Fair October 2009. It took longer for me to figure it out than it did to make the first and second pair. I didn't like the hole showing so I covered it up with Riet's Daisy Picot. I have since made earrings with just the daisy picots for little girls.

This is my deviation of the standard hen and chicks pattern. I let the "eggs" hang loose to give me some flexablity when sewing them onto the elastic so they can stretch when being put on. I used to sew the tatting to the baby socks but a. the baby outgrew the socks quickly or b. the baby got the white socks really stained. So now the tatting can be slipped on and off of any pair of socks.
