A while ago, someone was looking for a chart to convert the colors of
Berol Prismacolor pencils to DMC codes. Well, just for the giggles, I
sat down with my pencils and my DMC chart and made some (admittedly)
rough guesstimates as to which matches what. I don't have all the
Prismacolors and some of my guesses are only "close" and some of the
pencils really had *no* close match to DMC, but if you all would like a
copy of it, just let me know. I would post it here, but the list is
rather long and I don't want to annoy anyone. Of course, if enough
people want me to post it, I will. So, let's see a show of hands, 'kay?

Like Tricia, a lot of you want me to post this to the group, so here
goes! Once again, I apologize for its incompleteness. I'll try to revise
and refine it as time goes on. Maybe this is one for the FAQ, Kathy?

As you can see, some of the DMC greys are "between" the Berol greys, and
so are repeated in the chart. Hope you all find a use for this and that
it helps.

Happy stitching!
