Hope you are enjoying some nice summer time …or staying cozy for winter if we don’t share the same hemisphere! Kids are on vacation and even if I am working, I like to feel this relaxing holiday vibe when I get back home 🙂

Hi Everyone!

Summer is here!!! Now, we can start complaining about the heat!!! Yeah!!! For the past month, I really focused on cross-stitch and didn’t do any knitting at all. I started some new projects and enjoyed it so much that I didn’t want to stop and kept on stitching like a crazy woman!

Mid-May 16 : Cross stitch WIP and Book Review

Hello!

Today is May 16th and it snowed this morning…#@&%$$!!! How crazy is that? The transition from Winter to Spring is always a bit disturbing when the weather is playing ”yo-yo” with the temperatures, one day at 21 degrees and the next one at close to 0…

I have some cross stitch progress to share, a lovely book to show and a new essential in my cross stitch notions pouch.

Mid-April 16 : Knitting and Cross stitch WIPs

Bonjour!

April knitting and cross stitching is going strong! I made good progress on my Traverse Cardigan and I am now ready to ”attack” the shawl collar. This makes me a little nervous since I know there are some short rows on the back of the neck and I only used this technique on socks so far, however the explanations from the pattern seem pretty clear so it should be OK.

Knitting WIP and Cross Stitching Update

Hello!

Here is an update on my knitting WIPS and cross stitch progress. I finally got back some knitting Mojo and had some significant progress done on my Traverse Cardigan. I have now completed the two sleeves and joined them to the body. At that point, about half the raglan shaping is done. This piece feels like gianormous and it is quite heavy on the cable of my circular needles. It was supposed to be a winter piece for my husband but I was being a bit too optimistic and also got distracted by my new love for cross stitching…

As far as cross stitch is concerned, I have completed my April block from Clouds factory stitch along ”Postcards from the World”. The new postcard represents Moscow. I love the colors and the designs of the buildings! This was the busiest block so far, about three quarters of the area of the postcard is covered in stitches, and it is also my favorite. I can’t wait to see which country we will be visiting in May!
