WOW! Threads and Yarns! March 15, 2007

(This post is one month late!)

i went back to another carft store where i usually go to (a.k.a. a bigger tailoring/accessories shop, 2 story bldg. ). the sales man told me that in one week the new yarns and threads will arrive. and so it came! but im only able to come back after 2 weeks.

new-cotton-threadsi had never seen as many yarns/threads personally in my life before except from photos of course. but its just 3 short shelves.  and i guess some people will have the same stash. but for me they are a lot! the new threads came are 100% cotton, in 50 grams. its thicker than size 10 and looks double the size of size 10. the labels says: “nature cotton”, soft feather, high class knitting yarn. and the suggested hook to be used is 2.5mm-3.5mm. i lurrve them, ive been wanting a thicker thread. and now they are at hand reach.

blue-yarnthis is called baby yarn. 10% polyamid and 90% acrylic. its says brush yarn and hand wash only.

brush yarnsthis variegated yarn from taiwan (mind you this is the first time i saw personally a variegated yarn!) only says on the lable that its 100% acrylic and wash with special care. this also mentioned “brush yarn”.

half of it came from taiwan while the rest are from germany.  there are bunch of white yarns that says on the label its “superwash”. thats all i can recognize since the other half’s label are written in german language, but those yarn looks a bit thinner from the yarns i have showed here.

i wanted to buy a lot of yarns at least each of its kind, but dont want to buy something i dont have any idea what i will do with it. i even want to buy the superwash but they are all in color white. honestly i really wanted to hoard but, practicality strikes me… im thankful!

ok ok after 1 week i went back and bought some more yarms… i only bought one of its kind because im not that much into yarns, just wanted to try them. here are the pics, i also included the label for you to see. and guess what? i even took a pic of the shelves full of yarn with my camera fone and once i figure out to transfer it to the pc then it will be here.

Cross Stitch Floss January 30, 2007

Filed under: Fiber — riabeef @ 11:29 am

in my every visit to the local shop where i find some threads, i will always wonder why not used cross stitch flosses, which will come in a vast variety of colors….so one day finally i bought some to try it out.

cross stitch floss

the color is fuschia pink but its metallic. first i thought of using one strand or few strands only to combine with another thread but since its soo long and it will be very difficult to separate each so i decided to use them as they are.

here is what i came up with, both with red heart navy blue thread size 8:

one is a scrunchy, i used it on the last row.  while trying to make the pic lighter the color of the metallic thread changed into red!  (sent to my exchange partner)

the other one in the mobile fone case, i held both together (with my mobile fone inside, coz its mine) lolz.
