Metalforms Part 2

The upper right area around the Jessica circles is Encroaching Gobelin. It took forever (up 2 over 1) which made it perfect for doing as I watched football including our Eagles win twice (albeit not overly impressively last weekend but much better yesterday)!

The new lower left area is Rhodes Half Stitch stitched with Vineyard Silk Shimmer. That thread was surprisingly difficult to work with and felt awful. It’s 100% silk but it doesn’t feel like silky – it feels wiry. It twists up into knots and the ends keep coming apart. Using a shorter length helps. However, not everyone has the same experience – some do and some don’t. Odd!

I hope our Eagles experience the same type of playing in 2 weeks as they did yesterday!!
