We’re getting there, folks. Won’t be long now!
Once the white “ridges” were complete, I did the letters on the dreidel itself.
Another closeup. While the white ridges were done using the same yarn as for the background (Patons Shetland Chunky), the lettering was done using Patons Brilliant, a thinner, stiffer, metallic yarn.
Because this was a contest submission we had to use yarns from the contest sponsors, including Patons, Bernat, Diamond and Kertzer.
I know I’m teasing this out instead of just showing a finished object and being done with it. Sorry to do that, but I can’t show you what I’m actually working on as I am busy swatching for a few submissions I’d like to put out.

Very cool! It looks like the pattons worked fairly well.
