Gosh, is it that time already? Time for another blog hop? I guess it is but I want to know where the rest of my year went. Anyway, back to the business at hand. I can't wait to read everyone else's response.
What’s your absolute least-favorite thread to work with?
I had to think about this because there are not too many threads I dislike. I'm a fiber junkie and I can usually find something to like about any thread I use. But I do have one thread that I loath and that's not too strong a word. I hate the old DMC metallics, you know the ones that came on a big spool. To me it was like stitching with electrical wire. I once almost threw out a project because it was all stitched in them. It sat in a drawer until I discovered Kreinik's #4 braid. I haven't tried the new DMC metallics but with so many other threads available, I doubt if I ever will.
I also dislike DMC black and white. Both seem kind of thin to me. I much prefer the Anchor varieties. (actually if truth be told, I prefer Anchor in general over DMC). I'll use the DMC if I don't have the Anchor handy but really dislike using them.
I love Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Arts threads but sometimes they can be frustrating to work with. They seem to have thin spots and tangle real easily. But I love the effect they create so I'm willing to put up with a little frustration to use them.
