I also started "The Wedding" from My Big Toe Designs. I'm changing up the center section, but here's how I'm coming on the border. I'm stitching it with one strand GAST Blackboard over 2 on 40 count linen. This is my first project on 40 count linen and I'm loving it!
I have been taking a bit of a break from stitching which usually means I'll pick up some knitting. Now, you have to understand about me and knitting. Knitting is the activity that I resort to when I need something completely mindless. So that means I only knit extremely simple projects. If I want to think or count I'd rather be doing something else. All that to say, look at the nice simple slippers I made!
After finishing my slippers, I got started on a washcloth kick. I've been digging around on the net finding various free dishcloth patterns and adapting them so I have a mix of patterned washclothes about the same size. I think these will make great presents with some bath salts and homemade soap. Then I'll use the leftover yarn to make up some dishclothes to use in my kitchen.
Feels good to be back to blogging again. I've enjoyed catching up with the great stitching blogs I read. Everyone's doing such wonderful work I may have to change out the knitting needles for the tapestry needles again. Happy stitching!
