Beverly Elrod, BellaOnline's Tatting Editor, has proposed adding a new word to the tatting lexicon.
It wasn't so long ago that I picked up the term "retro tat" from other clever bloggers.
Retro tat refers to picking out stitches (or knots). Beverly's proposed new word – tonking – refers to the same thing.

Do we need a new word? Maybe so or maybe not.
My humble opinion is that there is room for a new word in the tatting lexicon. Word diversity gives language rich dimension.
And it is always nice to know what a person means, isn't it?
So I am spreading the word about Beverly's new word.
