Patchwork of Peace, Row 9 Red

Filed under: ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter, Patchwork of Peace

Several blocks required the the use of alternating threads which meant keeping 2 needles working. Since I prefer to finish out a thread, this was good practice. I don’t know why I haven’t been using 2 needles more often before this row but it seemed to go well enough that I’ll keep it up as I move to row 11.

Block 5 (from the right) required some careful ripping using tweezers. The dark Kreinik 061 had to come out because the checker board effect was so prominent that your eye was drawn to that one square.

Starting with the block on the right (#1) moving to the left (#19), I used the following threads (1 strand unless noted):

1 – Bella Lusso 764, Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS 499 (2 strands), and Pepper Pot Silk 018

2 – Entice E239 and Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1009 (2 strands)

3 – Needlepoint Inc Silk 502 and Needlepoint Inc Silk 503

4 – Pepper Pot Silk 017

5 – Elegance E820 and Kreinik #8 Braid 5505

6 – Kreinik #8 Braid 5505 and Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1005 (2 strands)

7 – Pepper Pot Silk 018 and Bella Lusso 764 (2 strands)

8 – Soie d’ Alger 4624 (2 strands) and Entice E239

9 – Elegance E820 and Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS 499

10 – Silk Lame Braid Petite SP08 and Splendor S1005

11 – Bella Lusso 764 (2 strands) and Splendor S820 (2 strands)

12 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1005 (2 strands) and 239 and Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1009

13 – Soie d’ Alger 4624 (2 strands) and Kreinik #8 Braid 003V

14 – Au Ver A Soie 100/3 SMS 499 (2 strands) and Kreinik #8 Braid 061

15 – Bella Lusso 764

16 – Silk Lame Braid Petite SP08 and Splendor S1005 (2 strands)

17 – Pepper Pot Silk 018 (1 ply) and Kreinik #8 Braid 5505

18 – Needlepoint Inc Silk 502 (2 strands) and Needlepoint Inc Silk 503 (2 strands)

19 – Planet Earth 6 ply Silk 1009 (2 strands)
