It isn't really clear, but you can see the doll house afghan I'm working on, the "yarn" is a red silk that is the size of sewing thread. Yes, that is a nickel for size comparison. That is a day's work on the needle there! Scary, isn't it. Actually, it is the equivalent of several day's work, because I'd had that much before and frogged (rip-it, rip-it) out and started over because I didn't like the way it was looking. Much better this time. This one is for Kyle.
