The 'joys' of thread!!!

Now today I'm showing you seven of the stars made from the diamond pattern which can be found here. 

OK, I'm showing the yellow one twice to prove that I cut out the yellow star in the top picture!!! It worked out just a teeny tiny bit bigger than the others. So, it's back to the yellow thread but this time with two wound together and not three. 

I really really thought it was going to be fine. All looked well until the whole star was completed. I still thought about it for another day or so before 'scissors over mind' took over!!! I hope to be able to show you the replacement yellow soon.

I ilke that yellow. What was wrong about it?

Just a teeny bit too big!!! Not enough to notice but it would've put the following row (if there is one) out.

Oh no! I’d have been very tempted to sqidge it in.

I do see the difference, but all that tatting! It's difficult to look at the four clipped points. Is there any magical fix for saving the star itself? I still can't believe how quickly you tat these motifs!

The yellow is so bright and cheerful! Too bad it's a tad too big. That would drive me bonkers, and I would be snipping as well.
