I started the super cool art of counted cross stitch WAY before I ever picked up knitting needles. I’ve probably done counted cross stitch since I was 10. Counted cross stitch does not benefit from what I would call the “hip” status that knitting has. I mean knitting is still mostly a granny activity but plenty of cool people knit. Famous people knit. You never see a picture of someone on a movie set in a magazine doing a counted cross stitch. (I just Googled it – no results!)
When I was pregnant with Wyatt I bought a counted cross stitch baby announcement that was really cute. The plan was to be done with it before he was born and then just stitch his name and vital information on the finished product. Well, yeah, that did not happen. My new goal is to finish this before he turns 1 at the end of June. And quite frankly that is ambitious.
I am also currently reading the Game of Thrones series. I am watching the show on HBO and digging it the most. Every episode ends and I say “THAT IS MESSED UP!” Never trust a Lanister. I’m just sayin.
*Small Things does a Yarn Along post, I believe, every week. I am not counting this one as part of her yarn along theme since it’s really thread. No yarn. But still – crafting and reading!
