New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

Wow, you've made amazing progress! Kiss It looks sooooo good! Kiss

How much longer do you think the rest will take?

You should be so proud of turning out such spectacular work! Kiss

I love your bead studio, too. It looks like such a peaceful, relaxing place...heavenly! Kiss And to work in front of the TV...that's my favorite place. Kiss

I hope your hubby does get this particular project finished far quicker. LOL, men love to take their time on home improvement projects. I'm still waiting on a few things, too...the shoemaker's family walks around barefoot, right? Sigh.

Thanks so much for posting such lovely pictures! Kiss

Hi, Calipage.

I see what you're talking about.  As we have always posted, we initially did our best to get the colors right for beads, yarn, and floss.  Once in a while someone reports an incorrect color but after a few years, there are not as many problems.

I did just scan through the Delica palette of colors and verified that DB1744 is the only one that is entered as nearly black when it should have color.  I'll correct this color as soon as I post this message.  One other problem we have with bead colors is that there is not really a standard color value from which we can enter into our database.  Even bead manufacturers don't have color values by which we can use.

As an example, here are a few different images of DB1744 beads:

These images are from various sources, all showing DB1744.  I realize none are close to black but I'm just letting you know that the colors we use in our palettes may or may not be the actual colors you see when you get the beads.

So in answer to your question, it's rare to find a color that's way off in our program (like this particular bead color).  It was definitely incorrect in the database and will get corrected immediately.

We also thank everyone who does report incorrect, discontinued, or new colors.

I apologize for this and actually just updated the database.  Here are the before and after colors:




loom bands have been around since 2013 lol i only discovered them last year in july my twin brother shay bought me my first ever kit and i said to him what the hell is this and what am i meant to do with it,shay's reply was they are loom bands sis you can make bracelets,watches,rings,earrings ect with them i tossed them in a closet and left them there until november last year when i came out of hospital after having surgery to remove half of my lungs after they'd collapsed due to a massive infection and i was laid on the couch one cold wet november afternoon so i asked nicky to get them out and i'd give them a try and i've been hooked ever since oh what a very bad pun that is lol
