Yellow Twist with Blue Specks

For the main area of the fore wings, I made a 3-1 twist from the yellow silk with half a strand of yellow replaced by half a strand of deep blue for one of the under-twist threads. This gives me random specks of blue in the yellow foundation.

The foundation will be held with diagonal holding for which I will make a 1-2 twist in yellow silk.

Happy Stitching

Hi Carol, like the yellow and blue twist. Quite different from putting in the usual gold isn't it.
What colour will you do the diagonal holding, yellow or blue?

Sorry, just read this agin and you've said yellow. Been a long week I'm a bit tired.
Still think it's an interesting 'twist' on the twist!
