I’m almost finished madly braiding a letterbraid to send in to the Braid Society‘s Traveling Exhibition*—still fiddling with the braidlets at the end.
(click photos for more detail)
The orange is DMC cotton embroidery floss, doubled, so 12-strand, and the light green is an unknown brand of silk knitting yarn of similar weight (sport? or maybe thinner). The braid is a little over ½” wide.
The color theme was “citrus” this year [this was Dec. 2010, for the 2011 Traveling Exhibition] . I’m usually pretty open-minded about colors, but I hated this theme—every combination of citrus colors I came up with looked terrible.
Finally my sister helped me find two citrus colors that didn’t seem completely hideous together. (Sorry about the glare in the photos—in real life the orange is duskier, and the other color is a very light green.) When the color choices resolved down to 2, it dawned on me that I should make a letterbraid.
