Because I have white sheets on my bed, I like to put a little something in one corner, so I can easily tell which corner goes where. I used my new loom (and followed a pattern I bought off Etsy) to mark one corner.
I’m quite liking the result:
This was the first time I used embroidery thread instead of sashiko thread. It’s very shiny. Here’s what it looks like after the ends are pulled through.
Since this wasn’t a darn and I wasn’t going to walk on the final result, I experimented with tying the knots off instead of weaving them in. This was slightly tedious, but no more so than threading my needle multiple times.
