Related to my latest finish - it is stitched on 32-ct. linen. I started out stitching with 2 strands of floss, but quickly decided that I didn't like the bulky look that I was getting, and switched to one strand. Then last night I started another pattern on 32-ct. linen, and again found that 2 strands of floss just wasn't making me happy. Now, I know so much about stitching is a matter of personal preference - "thread goes through needle, needle goes through fabric" being the only real "rule"! - but I just wondered what my readers might think/prefer. I also wonder if it has something to do with the fabric - I've stitched over-2 with 2 strands of floss on 32-ct. evenweave without a problem, it seems to be just the linen that lends itself to the more delicate look of one strand.
