I have a box containing many skeins of beautiful HDT I have collected over the last few years. Many I have not even tried yet. I decided a little while ago that I should not buy anymore (best not to look at all the beautiful colours if you don't want to be tempted to buy!) and use some of my stash. The thing I found though, is that unless I'm working something small, I don't want to use my HDT in case I run out and then, because they are one offs, I won't be able to complete my project in the chosen thread. So I find, most of the time, I go for Lizbeth of which I can easily purchase more.
I thought Mirabelle would look pretty in one of those HDTs - this one doesn't have a name but is made by Monica Braxton of Nag Studio on Etsy.
It's a rather pretty mix of colours I think.
Working on this caused me to re-think again the problem of thrown rings. In this case, the TR is made after the bigger ring facing the centre is made. TRs tend to suffer from a bit of gap underneath and a tendency of being a little floppy. I find starting the next chain with the second half of a double stitch helps stabilise the TR… yet it's not quite perfect to my taste yet. On the Mirabelle above, I tried different solutions for each of the TRs around the snowflake. It's not really that visible but there are tiny variations on each. It still requires more thinking. I don't know if there is a perfect solution but I'll keep trying!
