I went back to using the Mandarin again for the grays. The lightest is 826, the medium is 857, and the darkest is the 858. You will remember I am plying this and using four strands for the tent stitches. I always use a laying tool and this enable the fibers to lay very smooth. After I filled in all the grays, I went back to the Splendor 877 for the yellow and finished that. All that is left is the white......there is always tomorrow nite!
