In this photo you see size 20 HDT, some tatting done with it, some actual celery (the vegetable itself), and one of LadyShuttleMaker's handmade ceramic shuttles. To quote my teenage son, "The thread looks more like celery than the celery does" - LOL! I had to agree, because the veggie did seem awfully dull compared to the brightly colored thread. Still, I couldn't think of another name to call it. Incidentally, I did dye a batch with the same name quite some time ago, and this is similar, but "tweaked" (to try and spice it up) so it probably won't match exactly, in case you still have some of the old stuff lying in a drawer (what are you saving it for?!!)
Size 20 used the base thread of Lizbeth this time. Just so you know, my 2010 plan is: to eventually use all the sizes that Lizbeth comes in as the base for my hand dyed thread in the 6 cord type. I'm gradually replacing as I run out of the stock I have on hand. I am very picky about thread, and I wouldn't be doing this if Lizbeth wasn't a high quality, lustrous, strong, beautiful thread, which it has shown itself to be. The tatting in the photo is the hand dyed Lizbeth.
