I have a pattern for a Painted Doily that is made holding three strands of regular sewing thread and I've always wanted to try it but am nervous about doing it without hearing from others who have.  Here's a few questions I have:

Did you find it easy or hard to work with 3 strands of thread?
Did you find it expensive to make?
Did the colors blend nicely or could you see a break in the colors?
Was it worth the effort?

I have never made one personally, so this is just passing on what I've heard, but I have seen posts at other forums and believe me, the finished product is definitely worth the effort!!  They are gorgeous in the photo, and usually crochet items are even neater in real life.

I believe you have to be used to working with small thread, and have the patience for it.  (I'm a "threadie", but I've never used anything smaller than #10 bedspread weight.)

From what I could tell in the photos, the colors blended beautifully.

I'm sorry to say I don't know about the expense or working with three strands.
