I used to do a lot of counted cross stitch and hardanger, but now my eyes won't let me do it. I started a cross stitch pattern on a sweatshirt using waste canvas, but had to stop after just a few stitches. None of my family was willing to finish it for me, so it sat in my closet for several years. Recently, Just Relax and Stitch, a needlework shop www.justrelaxandstitch.com opened close to the Caribou coffee in Osseo where we knit at every Friday. Kind of jokingly I asked if anyone there would want to barter. I would knit a pair of socks or shawlette if someone would finish my sweatshirt. Here are her socks and my sweatshirt!
