Hello friends! This morning on Stitch Style I’m sharing my Boston University Mini-Sock.
I started this canvas last week on my drive down to North Carolina. I always love to have a small, simple project going, that I can carry around in my purse. Super convenient, and a great way to pass the time when you’re waiting around. One of my favorite things about needlepointing is how relaxing an experience it can be, if you make it. I have to confess I spent a good amount of time pre-audition, stitching away. It’s a wonderful way to focus your mind, and still keep your hands busy!
I just love all of Kathy Schenkel‘s designs. I think my favorite thing about them is that they are so versatile! Easy to stitch if you are a newer needlepointer, but still tons of room to play with different stitches and threads if you want.
Kathy has a ton of different University needlepoint designs- that are available both as mini-stockings and as rounds. They make great gifts for someone special’s graduation, and look wonderful displayed out all year round.
Here’s the West Point mini-sock I stitched for James last year (He’s so spoiled!) Why is it that I always seem to finish his presents before mine?! I guess it’s become a convenient way to justify even more needlepoint. I’m sure you all can relate though… It means a lot to make something special for someone you love!
