Dyeing Linen?

I'm having a terrible time finding linen in a high enough thread count in the color (close to DMC 738) that I'm trying to get for Lefkaritiko.  Would it be feasible/possible to dye white linen myself…Continue

Graph paper for Hardanger patterns

Are ALL Hardanger patterns made on graph paper with a darker line every 10 squares?  Or would every five squares be equally acceptable?  I can do either one, just wondering whether there is a standard.  The only patterns I have so far are from the booklet I learned from and one other book (not an instructional book), so I don't have much to go by.  When I made my one pattern years ago, I made it on graph paper with a darker grid line every five lines (probably because that's what I had on…See More

Thread sizes (wraps per cm)

Brenda Paternoster's book, Threads for Lace, is out of print now, apparently permanently.  I don't really need info on all the threads ever made; I just need info on the ones I'm likely to use, and I don't have samples to measure them myself.  Can anyone tell me the number of wraps per cm for the following threads?  (I was able to get a few others from the Addenda on her Web site.)DMC Cordonnet Special (I assume Lizbeth versions are the same?):#10#40#50#60#70#100DMC Coton Perle (pearl…See More
