Episode 147: Things to Do In Brooklyn
OFF THE NEEDLES
I finished my Grainbow Socks by Gynx Yarns!
ON THE NEEDLES
I've been knitting away monogamously on my Waterlily top. I'm almost done! Hoping to have it finished in time to wear to my trunk show at Gauge + Tension, this weekend.
A HUGE thanks to everyone for all the cross stitching tips. The problem was that I was stitching with three strands of embroidery floss on 40 count linen, when all I really needed was one strand. Thanks to you guys, my cross stitching is smooth sailing!
I also give mention to the Loop technique.
This week I finally announce the D-SPAKAL giveaway prize winners!
