A day or so ago I mentioned the chart I saw, tracked down and ordered? Silver Needle now has The Scarlett House’s two new charts up on their “What’s New” page.
I think you’ll see why I had to get A Changed World.
I’m having a bit of turmoil in my head. The chart gives Au Ver A Soie 100/3 and DMC colors. First, I’m not sure I can find all the 100/3 colors in one or even two shops. Some colors are just hard to find and there don’t seem to be many shops that have 100/3. Second, a friend and I were chatting about it and she isn’t sure 100/3 gives great coverage on 36 count linen. I’m using one strand of overdyes on the current project (Big Red House) and the coverage is a bit sparse but I like that better than 100% total coverage. To me, it looks a bit antique.
I’ve written to Needle in a Haystack to see if they will do a conversion and got a very nice email back that they will so hopefully that will get me the silks I need/want.
So . . for now . . I wait to see what my options are as far as floss.
