Love that afghan Andi!! The colors are just gorgeous. I have put down the knitting and the crochet for the Summer. Something about the humidity and my "hot" hands doesn't make yarn slip through my hands as well. I prefer to do yarn things in the Fall and Winter. So, I'm giving my eyes a workout with a very advanced, complicated, pull my hair out counted cross stitch. I work on linen even weave over ONE thread, 28 count. I'm an embroidery masochist......... I was sorting some pattern boxes and came across my teneriffe (chicken scratch) pattern notebook. Back in college I would sit in front of the TV late at night and just sketch patterns. I have almost a full notebook. I have lots of linen and cotton......... I need another project like I need a hole in my head.......... ......and I'm saving for a rug frame. I have been working on and off with traditional rug hooking, making stair treads. They are small enough that I'm using a cross stitch frame, but since I hold it in my lap, and I'm using a crochet hook, well, it's really hard on my wrist, so I do it off and on. I want a full size frame so that I can finally make a rug for my hallway, bedroom etc.
