christmas project day one

fairly meagre progress for day one, as there was much baking of macaroons and a very long walk in Harrogate, during which I got almost slobbered to death by a guide dog puppy.

Am not usre yet how much I like the de veres silk – the colours are pretty but it not behaving very well, maybe I just need to get used to it after using the other floss.

  1. Do give us a final analysis of what you think of the DeVere ….. 🙂 It looks lovely and shiney in the photographs

  2. to be honest I do have mixed feeling about it at the moment. Yes, it is lovely and shiny, and the fibre is better quality than I get from mulberry, but somehow it seems determined to misbehave in a way that the mulberry doesn’t. am reserving final judgement til the end tho, as it did take me a while to get used to the mulberry, and maybe the dever will be the same?

  3. That’s why I said “final analysis” 🙂 A comparison of the silks you have used would be great….
