Gosh, guys, thanks!
This is really no big deal. I got a couple of spools of LB Kitchen cotton, used 2 strands and made squares and rectangles. Every time I find an interesting or different cable pattern, I make a box. When I get enough boxes, I stitch them together. It's sorta FO/WIP as I just keep finding cool patterns to try. That's why it doesn't have a border yet.
I like using the Kitchen Cotton because the big spools are $10 and I've used 4 so far and this thing's gotten pretty big. It really does wash well! At first the cotton seemed a bit stiff but after that first wash... everyone fights over it!
I used size 11 needles with this and it seemed to be a good size. I'm not sure what the suggested size for 2 strands would be? 11's made a tight and not too bulky stitch and worked great for the cables. Another thing that I thought of... using the natural could be interesting if you dyed it! It really is a very bland and natural color and cotton should take color well. :thinking: That could be a fun new project!
Anyway... I'm so glad that you like it. If the mood strikes you... give it a try! It's one of those projects that you can work on for a while, put aside and pick back up.
