Motif # 8The colors are very bright and there are a lot of subtle tones as the colors change. The blue, for example, goes from Baby Blue to Royal blue to deep Indigo. The colors also change very quickly. As you can see in the bookmark, the large rings have at least two colors. Those color changes make tatting very addicting for me. I love tatting with variegated threads because I like to see the changing colors and how they play against each other. I could not be happier with this colorway. I can't wait to start a project with the Grackle thread.
