Heart ministocking II

This stocking is a heat-transfer from Pippin Studio.  The heart is stitched using Kreinik metallic in the nobuko stitch.  The cuff is also Kreinik stitched in the diagonal mosaic with a skipped stitch for the dots.  Those shown in white had no rhyme or reason so I made an executive decision and spaced them evenly using gold metallic.  They seem to be receding too much, so I may go back and do French knots over the gold stitches without frogging them. The world will never know.

The past 3 years I have participated in Nablopomo in November whereby one does a blog entry everyday in the month.  I won't be doing that this year because other things in life have taken control.  I will continue my twice a week entries (I started to write bi-weekly, but I saw an opera this afternoon and my brain is in overload and I doubted myself.  Ah, well!).  


  1. How accurate are you finding the heat-transfer process to be?

  2. They vary by manufacturer. Pippins are usually quite good, but I wanted to impose a pattern rather than randomness. In good company are also easy to stitch.
