Looking for alpaca yarn by Joan Erickson
Hi all, I know several of you are knitters/crocheters, so thought I'd try here. Several years ago I purchased some yarn. I finally found a pattern to use with it and have found I need more than what I got. I contacted the company and they replied they discontinued this line of yarn several...

How Can You Tell An Antique from A Copy? by Monica Ferris
If someone brought to you a dirty, stained piece of linen in a broken frame and you saw it was a sampler dated 1882, how could you tell it was actually a copy? I'm thinking it was stitched on uneven-count linen with silk floss. This is to be a minor plot point in the mystery novel I'm writing. ...

frogging. .. cut from the front or back? by Danny Breidenbach
My perfectionist streak in my wouldn't accept stitching back over an area I'd stitched. I would veeeeeeery carefully snip a few places on the front and frog away. I like to "unstitch" as much as I can to minimize cutting. That's how I would do it. "Different strokes for different folks" is a...

Celestial Dragon -- how much floss by Danny Breidenbach
Hi. I'm getting my ducks in a row to undertake TW's Celestial Dragon. Does anyone have any idea how much floss I'll need -- I'll be working it on 28 count, just like the directions state.
