Wow, I call that "crazy" glad you are feeling better. Now please can I ask you two questions. What is Knockdown and Shingrex is that for the virus??. As an Aussie I have never heard of either.

Knock down stitches are a light fill the same color as the fabric to flatten the knitwear for a better stitching result....there was a whole discussion of this here on cute, but can't remember what category it is under....for The Shringrix vaccine go to and that will explain is 90% effective against shingles.....

"Slowly back to work"...doesn't look that way!!!! You must be well on your way to recovery! I'd still be in bed, but here you are turning out the goods! I'm gald that you are able to do some fantastic embroidery as you heal. Your embroidery lays so flat and displays your abilites that always astounds me. I think you said in a prior post that you do not hoop the jacket. Now, I want to know what you do with the jacket's lining!

basketkase by basketkase 10d ago

this jacket had a zipout lining....yea!

Yea! Let's hear it for the zippers!

Beautiful work. Did you do knock down stitches on the beanies. I tried it on a couple of beanies and it seemed to take forever!
