Dontcha just love it when handknits come out *exactly* as planned, look fabulous and are super appreciated? :)
ETA: To all those that have asked, yes the sampler is also *my* handiwork!
I used to cross stitch all the time BK (before knitting, hehe) If you click on the pic to embiggen, you'll see my name on the sampler! Thanks for the extra compliments :)
