I have been cross stitching for years and this is the first time I have had this happen. I bought some new thread at Walmart over the weekend to finish up Pooh. I have never had thread that knotted as bad as this thread did. It was DMC and I usually don't have a problem. Did I get a bad batch or have others had this problem as well. Also does anyone know of any Disney Princesses small cross stitch patterns. I have seen the larger ones but want small ones to make into Christmas ornaments. Have Pooh and friends and Mickey and friends but now I need the Princesses. Thanks for your help.
