New! Caron One Pound, Caron Simply Soft and Herrschners 2-Ply Afghan palettes - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  The Herrschner's Worsted Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

New!  We've just added the palette for Deborah Norville Everyday Yarn!  If you knit and/or crochet, this is for you.  This is a beautiful yarn with a nice feel to it, a good alternative in worsted weight acrylic!  (Thank you again to BetwixtTheStitch!)

New!  The Red Heart Super Saver Palette - thank you to BetwixtTheStitch!

Welcome to Stitchboard!  Feel free to sit and stay awhile.  Check out our new Premier features.  In addition to the ability to create larger patterns (up to 500 stitches wide), illusion knitting and private labeling (no more worries about editing those pesky and messy PDFs), we've just introduced Filet Crochet, our most popular request!  We have many more features planned, too!  Laughing

Daniel4ever,
Welcome! Smile
I think that's an awesome idea with your daughter's boyfriend's saying as a family slogan! Kiss (Do you care to say what it is? If not, that's fine!)
I can completely relate to working with too small materials. A lot of finished and half-finished items I've found over the years are things I couldn't possibly work with now. Smaller count fabrics practically make me break out in hives! Wink
Anyway, the idea of using plastic canvas is wonderful. Kiss It's big enough to see (isn't that a great qualification?) and it will be far easier to work on. If you don't mind slanting stitches (I'm sorry to say we have no representation of it at this time), you could even use a needlepoint stitch instead of a cross stitch.
What I would say about using the freePatternWizard so that it doesn't get frustrating is to find a clear, unfussy font. If you use something with thick and thin lines or serifs, the freePatternWizard likely won't give a pleasing result. I know block letters don't always look nice, but there are some fonts out there that are a little less blocky and still pretty solid. Smile
Please do keep us informed of your progress! Kiss


Mel,

I was actually thinking about a scarf.. But I cannot find a pattern I like.. And my creativity has left me, or so it seems.. Sigh.. 

I'll figure something out.. Cheesy 

Melanie,

I almost hate the cardigan for not beeing finished.. :p lol

When i'm done with it, I need to wash the oil out of it.. The yarn still have some of the oil from the factory in it... Sigh... But I love the yarn.. it's wonderfull when washed.. Soft and cosy Cheesy 

I posted one FREE beading/jewelry book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)
