Here's my latest obsession...the Susan Rambo Sampler, the cover girl from the current issue of SANQ. I'm using a single strand of DMC on 32 ct linen (whose origin I cannot recall at the moment). Based on another blogger's comments about the NPI colors, I'm glad I decided to stick with DMC.
For the last 2 weeks I have forsaken all knitting to work on this sampler...that's almost unimaginable to me! Also took the plunge & boldly started in the "ULHC" (upper left hand corner)....hard to break a lifetime habit of starting in the middle. Hope to post major progress in a few weeks.
