I am 3/4 way through making Star Of India doily and ran out of thread! The pattern calls for 300 yards and I was using a ball with 350 yards. The thread is not discontinued but it is the new style which is thinner - although it is size 10 - and has hardly any twist. The dye lot would be different. I wanted to make the doily in one color. I may decide to make the edging in a different color.
It poured rain this morning. We needed it but I had hoped it would last all weekend. That way I could have a peaceful weekend without the three houses of noisy neighbors to the east of me.
I need to send a message somehow to get this blog fixed so it won't print in italics. I have tried everything to no avail.
