Ping, my little pink pig
Ping is my little pink pig, I hope you like him!
I've used two metallic rings to keep his rounded shape and, after some trials, I changed thread,because I've realized that I needed something less soft than cotton. So, I've used two strands of 100% polyester by DMC, wound with one strand of silk Faro. I hope that Marta (who suggested the pig some days ago) can forgive me if I still have not drawn the pattern, but I hope I can do it soon.
Metallic thread is Mouliné Metalisé (5288), silk is by Cucirini Cantoni Coats, n.3, color 258 (I think it's discontinued now). The size of those threads wound together is very close to a size 10, that's what I measure with my personal "gauge".
