Now I promised you pictures, and pictures you shall have! Felix and I did a bit of framing over the weekend. He did Link, which didnt fit in the frame I bought for it, but was perfect in a different frame I got for cheap a while back, and he did a really great job of it. And I finally finished framing the Stacy's Mystery Band Sampler I stitched last year - I started framing it last year but couldn't get it to be perfectly straight, so I put it aside, but after revisiting I think I can live with how it looks, so I only need to find a place to hang it now :)
Of course I also did some stitching. I added about 1.000 stitches to Dark Forces since I picked it up again - the first column had a ton of different colours and took quite a while to stitch, the second one is going much smoother. I really enjoy stitching on this again, although the stitches (2 over one on 22ct Hardanger fabric) are looking much messier than the 1 over 1 on Kitsune. But the coverage is great and drom two steps away noone can see it :D
I also worked on some knitting. I stalked Ravelry a lot, planning new stuff, but first there was one I had to finish, another pair of wrist warmers for my grandma from the remaining floss I had from the socks I recently did. I'm not sure I ever mentioned what yarn I used, but it's Lana Grossa 'Meilenweit' in Neon, Colourway 4108.
I was actually planning a new start, but since apparently I can't even get the most basic crochet supplies (like some nice cotton yarn in decent colours) on a Saturday afternoon, I had to order again and only got my supplies today. I'll tell you about it next time, but what I can tell you is it's colourful, fun and also a bit sad - have a sneak preview below ;)
Beautiful stitching congrats on the giveaway!
lovely framed pieces and great stitching on Dark Forces.
Your crochet yarn looks gorgeous,looking forward to seeing what you use it for.
I love your Link <3
Awesome post Leonore. Your framed pieces turned out great.
Great work on your WIPocalypse pieces this month.
I am glad the chart arrived so quickly too, good old European post!
Die Rahmungen sind euch sehr gut gelungen. Und bei den zwei WIPocalypse Teilen hast du wirklich guten Fortschritt gemacht.
Kann ich gut verstehen, dass du den Strawberry Sampler so bald wie möglich anfangen möchtest. Diese band sampler haben schon etwas Besonderes an sich.
There is so much to see! gosh I just want to run right over and dig through your stash and play with your new yarn :D
