Linen and Threads SAL 2018

Looks like I forgot to talk about my completion of the September section of the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL!

L&T SAL - Sep finish

The single noteworthy event that happened this month was that I ran out of the pink thread. I stitched half of this section’s pink part, and the skein ended, but when I rummaged through my stash, I couldn’t find another. This came as a surprise to me, because I’d thought I had 5 skeins of this color, and had anticipated that it would last beyond this SAL. I was wrong big time!

The pink skein was an old one and I had lost the color number for it, so instead of trying to shop for a color that most closely matches this one, I decided to go a shade darker, and picked a reddish one. (Yes, this one has at least 5 skeins, however, not all of them will be used.) Anyway, my January section had a lighter shade of pink before I switched to the darker one, so it could be a natural transition to grow even darker, and end the SAL with the new color. So many improvisations!

I hope October has fewer surprises in store. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Looks great, Anita! I am sure you have seen the October section by now. Do you love it? I am over the moon in love with this section as it has been what I was hoping for since the beginning of this SAL. I started stitching last night and am hoping that my variegated thread will do this section great justice. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with October ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Stitching!
