....loop method...

Yesterday arrive me the Little Kate calendar I’ve bought, the chart are lovely…

Thank you to Zohrah I can show you the Loop method I have tried to use, I would ask you a suggestion:

When you use loop method, and you have finished to stitch one colour but a lot of thread is left over…. I don’t manage to get unthreaded without cutting the thread (the loop is became too tight to unthread it)… what you do? You leave that colour in the needle to use it later and you use another needle for other colours? Or you cut the thread left and throw it away?.....

I haven’t notice that Coeur Fragile on the sidebar is on grey and my is on green, I don’t know why… on the chart I’m using the colour is green…I was beset by doubt so I’ve search other image on the net and I’ve found a lot of coeur green so I think the photo I’ve found on the web, and put in the sidebar, is of poor quality.

Yesterday evening I’ve had my first basket game, we‘ve lost but I’m satisfied I’ve scored a basket!!! My first basket!!! What an emotion!!!

Loop method: it all depends on how much floss is left and how much more I estimate that I'll need later. Sometimes I keep the ends and do two more loops from the remnants. Sometimes I'll just tuck a tail on that piece and use the two ply together. And sometimes I'll be lazy or wasteful or whatever and toss out the excess.

I usually pass the thread under surrounding stitches... Another method of starting without a knot ! It's the way you have to do for 3 strands anyway !
I never waste thread.... ;)
