Challenges with Vintage Thread

 It appears that vintage yarn can be somewhat fragile.  I had a bit of a mishap while sewing the edging on; the double strand actually unravelled after it broke!  That was a first - and a bit challenging to repair.  I wonder how the socks will fare in the wash....


  1. They are really sweet! I hope they wash OK. I would have thought that if the thread could tat it would be strong enough. Maybe it was just a fluke weak spot.

  2. Oh dear! They sure did turn out so pretty!

  3. Will you be trying again in another thread? I hope so because they're cute.

  4. Hi, Ann, Patrycja, Paula and M,

    Thanks for the visit! I enjoyed the pattern. Maybe I'll try it again, but there are so many choices!

    The thread is Olympus #20. It is a wonderful thread - smooth and silky, I love it.
