Cut Thru' Igloo update #14
Brrrr! That sure looks like cold water! The pale pink fish must be nice and chilly! I used Anchor multicolored floss, #1345, as stated in the chart. I couldn't find a DMC variegated or variations substitute, and I even bought Cosmo Seasons floss but it wasn't the right color either.
Has anyone heard the rumor that DMC floss sold in Europe is nicer than DMC floss sold in the USA? I didn't believe it, but as I was stitching the blue #519 in the water, I noticed it was so smooth and silky and slipped through the Aida like butter! I looked at the label and it didn't have the "For sale only outside the European Union" note that is on all the other skeins, so I guess this one must have come from a European seller, or it's just a really OLD skein! I'll certainly enjoy stitching all the blue water now!
