Lizbeth. Luckless. Lousy.
The red thread has become uneven, splitting, knotted and thin. It was going along so well, this doily of chains ; then the thread became positively evil.
I have to order another ball to finish the piece, but after this I'm nixing #40. Luckily #80 is still tolerable. No one else seems to have my bad luck with this thread.
