This is one of my other projects - another doily designed by Jan Stawasz. Instead of size 10 thread, I am using DMC 80 (ecru) and Sulky Blendables #12-wt (teal variegated). I was SURE a full 5-gram ball of DMC would be plenty, since it was not the only color I was using. I was wrong. Today I cut several pattern repeats off (I had started the next round). Dug through all my 'small thread' stashes to find my last ball of DMC ecru. I am not worried about the difference in dye lot, because the threads are close enough to look alike in the sunlight, and there will be a round of teal rings between the 'old' ecru thread and the 'new' ecru thread. There are two rounds left before this doily is finished.
