Snowflake Stocking Update

December 2, 2008
Day Two

Day Two

This small project is coming along fine.  With all the snowflakes done in metallic it is hard to appreciate the effect in a photo.  I used an old card of patina for the cashmere stitch and it really frayed badly unlike some of the newer patina.  I wonder if the makers have done something different in recent months.

Each project I do presents its own challenges.  This project is reminding me of how important the direction of the pull on each stitch is when there is so much open canvas.  I am working each row from top to botton and not carrying any threads.

I expect the next update will be the finished project.
