I have occasionally done needlepoint projects over the years, and I have a  
new kit that I want to start.  The last kit i did i somehow made a minor mi
stake in assigning the colors  and ran out of yarn, but was able to salvage
 it by buying the same kit off of ebay lol. I figured I would pay closer at
tention to the directions this time and step 5 in the directions says to se
parate the strands of yarn and there is a depiction of two hands pulling ap
art the 3 ply strand into what looks like a 2 ply strand and a single stran
d.  I have never done this before in any kit I have done and never run out  
of yarn except this last time.  If  I do separate the strands, do I separat
e them all to single ply?  I have never done this before and never had a pr
oblem.  Thanks for any input;)

doesn't the kit tell you how many strands to use? Even when I'm using  
all three stands of yarn I separate them and then recombine them


Re: Bucilla kit question
I have had kits call for separation of 3 ply strands into 2.  The 3rd stran
d you mate with another single strand and so one.

My big caveat on kits is:  you can almost count on running out of backgroun
d wool, so load up first even if it means buying all new.  I am right now b
uying all new tap wool for a background.  I had to cut out dozens of hours  
of work, growling all the way.  Rather than try to find a match, I am start
ing fresh with a ton of new wool.
