Rainbow Ribbons, Bands 9 and 10

I finished about 8 inches (about 2 inches per hour) of Band 9 of Rainbow Ribbons during our ANG Main Line Stitchers chapter Stitch-in Saturday and the rest on our rainy Sunday. The Milanese stitch was tough to compensate unless I just started on the inside edge and worked to the outer edge using 2 needles as I went along. Then, it was easy.

Band 10 is a simple Slanted Gobelin with back stitches but I decided to switch to a Fly stitch done on the true diagonal rather than a typical oblique angle because this piece has a lot of Slanted Gobelin already and the back stitches were not looking as good. The final appearance is identical.

This design is by Kam Wenzloff (Nov/Dec 2019 issue of Needlepoint Now) that our chapter is doing as a year-long project using Color Complements threads. I’m ready for our March 8th meeting on Zoom.
