Clover Shuttle

My favourite type of shuttle. Anyone know why they come with that gold spot?

I have two of these and they are great to tat with.!!!!!

You buy these in two's usually and one dot is gold and the other is silver on the shuttles .

I guess this is to distinguish between Shuttle #1 and Shuttle #2. Just a guess!

I like them because they feel so light and smooth in my hand, different even than the same style plain coloured clovers.

You're a genius! And observant. I thought the dots were all gold but now that I've checked I see that one of each pair is indeed silver. The not knowing was really starting to bother me, thanks.

Oh! Fox, you are a genius. I'd never noticed that either, and you're completely right!

They're my favourite type of shuttle too.

He he ... I know that one is gold and the other is silver, but I never thought to ask why they are like that. Fox's answer is very logical.

Hi M.
Yep one silver one gold. Bt I have trouble seeing them in the light I use so I put small temporary tattoos or stickers on mine and then coat with clear nail polish.

Michelle said...

What a good idea! I have trouble telling the difference with the spots too so that will come in very handy. Thanks.

Yep, to tell which is 1 and 2. Then I added them to my stash of shuttles and thought...why don't I just use a colored one with it instead of squinting at the dots. *laugh*. I buy clover shuttles in 5 packs from Handy Hands.
