stitches left to go!I made it and put in 680 stitches over the weekend =)
There are now 4 columns left to stitch and a very partial column (just 3 stitches wide). So I am confident that I will finish this in the next rotation =) The last 200 stitches I did on this one were quite confetti heavy, so I am happy to go back to Rheingold for a week.
But here is my progress
And I got RAKed! I can’t believe it, my first RAK =)
We had an early run on the All Hallows Eve Exchange for those who wanted to do this during the sale. I took the chance, but I will also take part in the exchange at the end of the month =)
I got Mini Pumpkin Pixie by Jasmin Becket Griffith =)
It was really funny, I was very close to RAKing this chart to another lady. I was torn between this and another design, so I RAKed the other one and put this on my Wishlist I had a funny conversation about this with my boyfriend:
Me: Well, she looks a bit like me, doesn’t she?
Him: Mhm… She doesn’t look evil enough!
I don’t know when I will start this, I would love to do so soon. I really like the design and since it is a mini there is hope that I might actually finish this one day. It’s only 225×298, which is 16 pages in large format.
I will go to Rheingold for a week, but I am a bit worried. There are huge blocks of 939 to come and I only have two skins of it. So I am worried about the dye lots. I think I will try to a few skins (about 10) of one dye lot for the blocks of that color. I’m totally confused about dye lots. Some of my skins seem to have them, others not.
See the number on the right skin? I’d say, that’s the dye lot. But you can also see, that the other skin doesn’t have that number.
I ordered both skins from a German seller at the same time, I got a bunch of black at that time and have a few with and a few without those numbers.
The numbered skin says also, that it is for sale only outside the EU, does this mean that the non-EU-skins have dye lots and the others not? *confuuuused* Or is the dye lot number somewhere else?
I hope to find out soon and I guess I will leave out the blocks of 939 until I figured out weather I should stitch them now or not.
Happy stitching =)
