Thank you for all of your comments on the last couple of posts. You all rock!
I have finished the first sock in Opal Surprise! and I’m about 3/4ths done with the second sock. Ribbed socks look so… unlikely to fit a human foot.
I even made some progress on the cross stitch iPhone case. I verified that Shepard is wearing a set of N7 armor, found an N7 logo, Photoshopped it up the way I wanted with the background colors, and used this clever online converter to whip up a basic cross stitch pattern.
The next step was to buy the embroidery floss. I drove over to a nearby LYS called Ana-Cross Stitch. As you might guess from the name, they also sell cross stitch supplies.
Except that they don’t anymore, they are phasing them out. I made a weird face and then couldn’t help but ask, “What will they call the store now?” (She didn’t know.)
I got skunked on all my colors except white, which I’m pretty sure I already own, but I didn’t want to drive all the way to the store and come home empty-handed, you know?
So the next step here is to get to one of the big box craft stores. Unfortunately, they are about 20 miles away, and I’m not sure when I will have the chance. Le sigh!
