Panoply of Peacocks in progress!
I am showing you all a picture of the fishing line I am using to grid now. The fabric for Panoply of Peacocks is 26 ct evenweave, and at the time I began, I could find only 6lb line locally, ($7) on a huge spool nearly a mile long. It is ok for this count fabric, but I wish it was a little thinner. So I went ahead and ordered a couple of smaller spools of 4lb - around $5 each - from Amazon.
There is enough to last a LONG time, (300 yards), and I can and will reuse the lengths I've cut and will reweave thru my fabric for the next design.
