Hand Dyed Thread Heaven

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I am addicted to Hand Dyed Thread. I firmly believe that it is impossible to have to much HDT and I get excited every-time I come up with a reason to order more. It is so much fun to open the mail when it arrives and marvel at how the thread shines and how the colour jumps from the thread, there is nothing like it.

Now imagine how happy I was when I decided that I was going to make a set of doilies for 3 antique lamps that we have and that I was going to make them out of Marilee's (YarnPlayer) HDT, Tourmaline. I placed an order for 12 skeins and this is how they arrived.
Now these are not your regular skeins. These ones each contain 200 yards of wonderful Tourmaline HDT. Well I think I now have enough HDT to keep me busy for a while although I am sure a new reason to purchase more HDT is just around the corner. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HDT heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The doily is started and I will be posting a progress picture soon. I wish we all could have an unlimited supply of HDT.

As a fellow HDT addict, I can only imagine what a 200yd skein must feel like in your hands! Thank goodness we have understanding suppliers, who take care of our needs. LOL I'm looking forward to seeing your creations, Clyde.

Clyde said...

I send out a special Thank You to our makers of HDT. Where would we be without you?

Susanne said...

Oh yes we are very lucky our suppliers can keep us busy and make sure our wallet isn't too crowded, lol. ;-D
Looking forward to see what you'll be doing this time.
