I knit some sunflowers. No idea what I'll do with them but I thought the pattern was cute
So pretty!You guys do beautiful work.. I crochet, knit, cross-stitch and sew mostly children's garments. This is a baby blanket I crocheted for my granddaughter.

I have a question for those of you who do cross-stitch. Have you ever encountered an embroidery floss that sheds lint and eventually breaks?
I'm working on a Christmas stocking for our next granddaughter. It's on 18-count navy blue aida cloth and this particular floss is a very pale blue. All of the other floss in the kit is very sturdy, although pretty much all of them leave a small amount of lint behind as I work the colors.
I don't tend to pull my stitches tightly, so I don't think I'm stressing the strands too much. The threads in this color seem to be thinner than the other colors. It's driving me crazy! I just hope that there's enough floss to complete the project after all of the broken threads ends that had to be woven in.
This is an old Dimensions stocking kit. The floss has Dimensions' numbers. I've found a website that has the equivalent DMC numbers but sometimes they don't quite match perfectly. I'll have to go through my cache of skeins to see if I have something close if I run out.I haven't come across that with regular thread. I hate using the metallic threads, they seem to shed weird and break. I don't use kits much though. I tend to only use DMC floss, is there an equivalency number to try to replace it? Sometimes that is included in kits.
That's super cute! I wish I had the patience for cross stitch/needle point, etc. I get frustrated that it takes so long before it starts looking like something.
That's the $10 question! I'm going to see what the shop recommends.That's super cute! I wish I had the patience for cross stitch/needle point, etc. I get frustrated that it takes so long before it starts looking like something.
So what will this grow up to be? A throw pillow, or a wall decoration, or ...?
