This is my wintry project, Do You Hear What I Hear?, by Cricket. I love her designs and have many many many of them. There's something about sheep....
Fabric is Wichelt's Star Sapphire, 28 ct., over two. The Sheep's Silk was much more moderately priced, but the designer said her model was on 18 count with two ply of that stuff! NO WAY! I couldn't even work two ply on the 14 count. So I'm using one, and it's wooly enough for me. But my LNS was out of the fun variegated Taupstone, so I substitued a gray for that. Here's a peek at the first little sheepy taking shape.
Cute! Like I said, just something about sheep. :)
Now onto some stash. My DH got me a nice gift certificate (which I'm nearly out of now), and here's a bit of what I spent it on.
I used to have that Bent Creeek design, but sold it. Then I found it in the clearance bin at the LNS. I was just about to hit eBay for it, because I want to do it for my nephew! Score! So, there's my stitchy week-at-a-glance. Until next time,
