I don’t know why I waited so long to try silk threads. In a bit of an impulsive moment, I picked up one pull skein at the local shop one night. In the piece here, I used two strands of Au Ver a Soie Soie d’Alger (color number 1812) and I love the results.

I think that this little experiment was pretty successful, and I will definitely be using more silks in the future.

  • I really love that, it’s absolutely gorgeous.
    I have some silk thread and I’m scared to use it. I get hung up on using things on the “perfect” project so I’m not wasting them, and then they just sit around being wasted. You’ve inspired me to use it!

    • I get hung up on the “perfect” project for materials, too. I’ve started to just jump in more, but it’s a hard habit/frame of mind to change!
