I bought myself some linen to cross stitch with for a future project, having never used it before. I know some people don’t like the unevenness of the material, but I think the rustic look is nice, and I think I have the perfect pattern for it (an Alice in Wonderland inspired gradient pattern). Along with it, I bought some floss that I needed for future projects. I can’t wait to get started!
Well, almost. I’m still adding a border to it right now (I’m doing two rows of grey then a row of black then I’ll assess if I want more) but it’s looking really nice and hopefully my daughter gets lots of use out of it. It was simple, a lot faster than knitting a blanket (bit over a month, at my pace that’s pretty good) and a pretty good size, too. I’ll most certainly try more C2C blankets in the future.
