I’m also particularly pleased as I bought this as the chart alone (not the complete kit) on ebay and converted the threads to DMC. I think the conversion worked really well, although I did change all the yellow after I arrived back home from holiday.
I particularly loved the speciality stitches, they are my best thing – I love them, kiss kiss (sorry, too much Little Wolf). I really like the texture added by those areas of Ukranian Whitework.
I was initially also a bit sceptical at first about only using one strand of thread, but now I really appreciate the delicate effect.
The conversion I used is as follows:
|Colour Description||Soie ’Alger colour||DMC colour|
|Deep Grey (Kreinik, Silk Mori)||8055||646|
I used some online sources to convert as many colours as I could and then did a bit of a floss toss to fill in the gaps and make sure all the colours fitted together in the overall palette.
The online sources I used include:
