I just had to share this. This is Circle of Crowns from Jon Yusoff. I made it with the metallic thread from the DMC spool in Light Silver. I love the way this tats up. I did have to keep my tension a little bit looser than normal. This was to keep the metal from flaking off the thread. Once I figured out the correct tension, after the first ring, it tatted up like a dream! I've used the other DMC metallic threads that come in skeins and I have to say this spool type is so much easier to use.
I did use bobbin shuttles not post shuttles. It keep the tips from the shuttles from scraping the thread. I used it straight from the spool so no doubling up on the thread. It's size is slightly larger than 80 but still smaller than 40. I also found it really hard to take a picture of it. It's incredibly sparkly! I believe it will be go wound up with another color, darker preferably, to balance it out.
