I really enjoy the unpredictability of variegated threads. The colour just goes where it wants to, as if the thread is helping to make some of the design decisions. I like the colours you have used on your piece here.
Hi Karen - that's it - it's the little surprise of where the color ends up.
just discovered your work - the stitching here is great. i love the transition of variegated thread; there is something about the changing colours, as in knitting with variegated yarn. it spurs you on to see how the colour will evolve.
I too have just discovered your lovely stitching, thanks to Jude Hill. I love working with variegated thread. It creates an added dimension to the stitched surface.
