An entirely pleasant project, this cross stitch has been a little crafty vacation from knitting for my wrists1. I got him from this book. You should get it. It's very cool.
As you can see:
- I didn't follow instructions and take it out of the hoop when not stitching. It now has perma-hoop-lines.
- While I thought black thread is black thread, that appears to not be the case. You might be able to spot some slightly less black than the surrounding black. Yep. He's a unicorn-of-a-different-colour.
- It's big! And I think that unicorn looks lonely all by himself there.
1 Now, don't think that I don't like knitting, and need a vacation from it! I love it, and perhaps too much. A few years ago I did some marathon knitting and strained my wrist. I've now got a RSI there, and a ganglion cyst. Nothing horrible! It's just that I have to watch how much I knit in one sitting, and then in one week. Take it easy, and I can knit for years to come!
