I plan to win this beautiful home, when I do I'll have a picture taken of me sitting in a comfy chair on the front deck, knitting and looking out on the ocean. Yes sir-ee, I'll post that photo on my blog when the time comes. Blow a little luck my way please. Can you imagine, with a house that size, how large my craft room will be?
I've added a few more rows to the Rainbow Doily. The yellow is finished and I am now well into the green color. It looks gorgeous. Each new color adds a spectacular new dimension to it. Last color up will be blue.
Michelle, I am using Mettler Metrosene thread. I really don't think it matters, any good sewing thread that is available in a pleasing range of colors would do. I have not used the colors suggested in the leaflet. The leaflet includes several pastel shades which I feel take away from the desired rainbow effect. I have chosen to stick entirely to bright, pure hues......no pastels, no muted colors......and I am taking the rainbow through all of its colors, from blue through violet, red, orange, yellow, green, and back to blue again.
Hmmm.....somewhere in this thread blending technique there is the potential for a knitting project of some kind. Maybe in fine gauge tencel or silk? I must give this some thought so that I can add yet another project to my "must do" list.
