Wonderful finish !

What an absolutely wonderful idea. It's beautiful Patti! Your finishing is just perfect. I'll have to refer to your pictures when I finish off a couple boxes. I've been wondering exactly how to do that. Beautiful finish!

Lovely box!

Thanks for your comment on my blog - as far as first socks, there are a lot of great sock yarns out there. I have many favorites, but Trekking XXL, Lorna's Laces and Socks That Rock are a few of them.

As for tips, just find a good pattern and follow the instructions - it may sound a bit strange but it will all work out!

Oh congratulations on your award. I love what you have stitched and finished - it is so beautifully done.
Lots of love

Great Box - if you have time can you tell us the name of the box from Ikea, as I'd love something like this if it was available in Australia.

Janine said...

Patti,

I love your ideas and stitching. Would love the same information as The Lady Stitcher.

Nana said...

Hi, Patti, Did you ever talk to your friend who did the designs? Are they available for purchase?

I really hoped to make it to the Guild to check it out and get in on this box project. Maybe I can get there next year.
