Ark races - second leg
I'm not sure how clearly you can see this, but I have tried two different threads for the same stitch. One of them will be ripped out.... One side is Trebizond in the perfect colors, but I don't like the loft or the sheen. One could argue that the roof of the Ark is wet and therefore shiny, but I want a somewhat more rustic finish. I switched to 2 strands of Soy Luster which I love. The strands lay perfectly flat, the color works and the roof doesn't overwhelm the windows.
