Ive had some issues with pencil - mainly it getting rubbed off on lighter threads, and being visible in un-stitched areas (not a problem here tho). I find it very hard to wash off fabric - had to use a toothbrush and handsoap to remove the lines from my sampler

I use pencil too. I haven't had any real problems with using it though. I only use it for projects where I'm covering the whole piece. I use a mechanical pencil instead of a regular pencil. I find that the marks don't rub off onto my threads and it washes out pretty well without any trouble.

It's possible. I try to stay away from things that will smudge. It's such a pain to get clean afterwards. I find a mechanical pencil is easier because the lead will fall into the individual holes, so my lines stay straight and don't meander all over the place when I'm gridding (I can't draw a straight line for the life of me without a ruler).

ive tried about 40$ worth of different white and light colored pencils - but none of them wash off of my test fabric, even with light scrubbing in the un stitched areas
