Just when you thought you'd been spared from MORE snowflakes here they are again!!!
Now interestingly the top two or three are using a thread I was given by Edda Guastalla. The thread actually has a glittery element in it which is well twisted with the main thread which could be polyester or cotton.
I must admit I wound it onto the shuttles in great trepidation as I was sure it wouldn't be easy to use. Wrong, wrong, wrong. It was really really easy to tat with and gives a lovely sparkly effect too. In fact when I offered this selection of snowflakes to friends to choose from the red ones went very quickly.
