and if you are wondering what an "ort" is, you are not alone! no one quite knows the origin, but"ort" is the shorthand used by stitchers for "odd random thread" or "old ratty thread" as an affectionate term for the small lengths of thread cut off at the end of a completed row. many stitchers collect these colorful bits throughout the year to remember their various projects or simply to enjoy seeing a visual of their needlepoint palette.
