I am having a hard time keeping track of all the colors I am using on this project.  I did not like the designer’s charted colors and have selecting colors based on photos of this sampler found here.  This means that I may have to use different colors for the same symbol in the chart.  I have been trying to keep track in an Excel spreadsheet but it is becoming rather inefficient and clunky.  So I had the bright idea of using my blog and photos to keep track (why didn’t I think of this before?).

All threads are HDF.  Some of the same colors are from different dye lots, and spooled in different sizes.  I have used the following letters to distinguish:  M = mini spool, m = micro spool, S = skein.
