SBQ: Blended Threads

And anoth­er Stitch­ing Blog­ger Ques­tion:

How do you han­dle blend­ed threads? Do you kit the blends up before you
start a piece, or do you grab what col­ors you need and blend when the
need aris­es? If you kit up the blends before­hand, how do you store
them? Do you have anoth­er option for blends to share?

I can’t remem­ber the last time I did a piece that used blend­ed threads. Obvi­ous­ly, I haven’t got­ten around to stitch­ing any­thing by Tere­sa Went­zler 😉

When I’ve had to use them, I just blend them as the need aris­es. I keep most of my threads (DMC, def­i­nite­ly) on plas­tic bob­bins, so when I start a project I gath­er all the col­ors required and put them on a met­al ring. As I cut a length, I wind what­ev­er I didn’t use back on the bob­bin for lat­er use, to avoid waste.
