A study in silver threads
As I was finishing up the stitching on my little friend's mini-sock, it occurred to me that this project has turned into a study in Kreinik silver metallic threads!
The cuff was stitched with Vineyard Silk Classic "Bright White" in basketweave--the sheen of the silk thread is much more obvious in person than in the photo For the name and the date in the lower left corner, I chose an old stand-by: Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #001. It still provides "bling" and shows up well against a white background.
I'm happy with the effect the combination of silver threads has produced on this project. At some point, I'd like to experiment with combining gold threads as well. But for my next project, a lighthouse is calling to me!
