Welcome to all of my new followers!
Last night I finished part 2 of Petit Sampler that I'm stitching with the Sticklounge group. I know the chart is available from the original designer's blog, but I have to remember who that is before I can share it. This is stitched on a custom color from HDF on 40 ct HDF Mermaid Blue linen. I'm really liking the bright colors on the dark fabric!
Friday, I stopped by Michaels on my way home. I've been debating the idea of making the boys new scarves to keep them warm this winter. This is the color, I picked out for them. It's a very soft yarn, called Simply Soft, I think. I've pulled everything out twice since this is my first attempt with tunisian crochet. I started out with single crochet which made this just curl terribly. So I started again with double crochet and this is the result! So, now I have two scarves to work on in this color and another one for me. I bought an alpaca yarn for mine. It was a more expensive than this but I wanted to try something different too.
Last night after I finished part 2 of Petit Sampler, I pulled out it's much bigger cousin. I really like this one...just wish I had more patience for all the repeats in the border. Once I get into the inside and away from the border, it should stitch up faster.
