Having recently finished my first stranded colourwork project I naturally have a renewed appreciation for all things stranded. But is it strange that the thing that most impresses me about the process is the floats? I find the back of the work so pretty…sometimes much prettier than the front!
I have been noticing these ‘back to front’ stranded pieces for months now and look forward to the day I can do even enough stranding to show it as the ‘right’ side.

I have been seeing this image below for ages now. Love it.

Look at the amazing texture of these long floats! (I’d wager they would probably be a pain in the ass, though, catching on everything.)
