Laura is knitting a pair of Vanilla is the new Black socks using Desert Vista Dyeworks in the Puff the Magic Dragon colorway. She has cast on the Puddle Duck sweater out of Miss Babs Yowza in the Lori colorway.
It was gifted on Friday. She has also finished the Owlet sweater for Julia out of Knitpicks Brava Bulky.
Leslie mostly finished a Patterns for Pirates henley tee out of a knit fabric.
Laura has been spinning some Southern Cross Fibre on BFL.
Question from Mimifan, “My question is about finishing cross stitching. Leslie has mentioned sending her cross stitching out for professional framing. What does that entail? I guess I assumed Michael’s type stores would be able to handle this. Can you give an idea of cost? I’m a new cross stitcher and have no idea what to do with future cross stitching. Thanks!”
