From Karey's recent Newsletter. I always find interesting little projects in her booklets:
This is a vintage pattern, apparently from an early 20th Century magazine. It's about 2" wide. Love it. I am going to play with this pattern as I tat the second Ben Fikkert.
Now, about the purple thread. Again, I used #80 Lizbeth. But surprise, surprise; this time it is SO
DIFFERENT from ALL the threads I used in both Ben Fikkert pieces. This purple feels stiffer, is not
as twisty and tats with lots of body to my work.
Thé inconsistent, undependable quality of Lizbeth threads continues to enrage me! But the colours always manage to lure into overlooking all the awful flaws. I wish there were an answer to this problem...like a new competitor in the world of thread to render Handy Hands more accountable.
How can I whittle down those floppy picots? With the tiny thread, for me, this a huge drawback; I don't seem to have enough control of the thread to tat tiny picots, though I keep trying. Very frustrating indeed.
