Mini stitchy rant

Have any of you stitchers out there used 28ct Monaco fabric? I think it`s 100% cotton...and I HATE it! It`s rough and scratchy, and so closely woven it makes 2 strands of DMC drag and fuzz, and twist up til every stitch has to be either railroaded or smoothed with a laying tool. I have another piece kitted for an ornie, and will be unkitting it shortly. It might be ok to work it one over one, but I don`t do much over one, so I will likely set it aside. It might make good fire starter some cold winter day...

Til next time, keep stitching ladies!

I actually used it years ago for a huge TW (Millennium - came with the kit, and I had to pretty much cover it completely in most of the picture, TW-style, lol). I didn't hate it at the time, but now that I've been using linen almost exclusively for several years I probably wouldn't like it. Good luck!
