Well, I’m not stitching so much these days, I don’t know why and I hope it will change again.I’m currently addicted to knitting socks (don’t know why) and so I have only a little to show. I also don’t feel like blogging these days, I’m forcing myself to make an entry. I hope I will do better on both accounts in the future…
I made a new start at the beginning of this month and it’s Eternal Promise by Matt Stewart. Here is how it will hopefully look like:
And here is what I did so far, some 3600 stitches in (well, this actually gained some 200 stitches lately)
Well, 3600 is a very small piece of this because the stitch count is 525×843, so 442575 in total. This means 99 pages in large format and I am not even done with page 1! I guess this will keep me busy for a while… This time I am stitching on 28ct Brittney Lugana, I bought the fabric on sale (the price was very low, I usually pay thrice as much for a metre) and it was declared as “light yellow” but I don’t think it looks like yellow.. It’s more like ivory or off-white, so it’s absolutely fine 😉 I wish I had bought more of that stuff… This is my first try with 28ct and I really enjoy it. It’s easy to work on, but it took me a be to get used to the smaller count. The stitches are very fine and neat, I would say the coverage is better than on 25ct. But I noticed that I can only stitched for two or three hours before my eyes get tired and stitching very light colors is not that easy. So I can’t say if I prefer this to 25ct.
But I will try and put in a few stitches now. 1400 stitches to go, so I hope I will be able to finish the page this month? Anyway, I’m planning on posting updates more often, maybe my next post will contain some knitting ( I’m waiting for a bunch of yarn to arrive)
