Thanks and a Link


Thanks to everyone who posted with advice or just plain sympathy over my previous post. I called Webs- dear, sweet Webs- and it turns out that they did indeed have more of the dyelot, which was truly miraculous, given I bought this yarn a year ago. So we're off and knitting on Mr. Frick's SH! Done the hem and decided to duplicate stitch the inscription from his wedding ring into it, and wanted to pass along a link to a nice chart generator for Celtic-style lettering for all who might be interested. (Many thanks to Kate Gilbert, who used this site for the message in the hem of her daughter's sweater and passed the info on.) Have a great weekend!

  • i love the inscription! I wanted to put something in mine, but thought it would add too much unneccesary bulk. Yours looks great, maybe its the duplicate stitch to the rescue! Any complaints about bulky letters? Or do they lay as flat as they look?

    Awesome!
