variegated threads... fili che cambiano colore

I have a number of skeins of variegated threads. Both DMC and hand dyed ones and I always think I should use them more often. They are really effective. I guess all you need is the right design. This chart is from Plum Pudding Needle Art and I used a thread called Cantelupe by Six Strand Sweets. I had the floss as a gift (thank you!) and I am sorry to see that it is no longer produced. It was really lovely to work with!

Ho parecchie matassine di fili mélange, sia DMC sia tinti a mano. Mi dico sempre che dovrei usarli più spesso perchè l'effetto è davvero bello. In fondo tutto quello che serve è lo schema giusto. Questo è di Plum Pudding Needle Art e il filato che cambia colore è Cantelupe di Six Strand Sweets. Il filo è un ragalo (grazie!) ed è un peccato che non lo producano più perchè era gradevolissimo da usare!
