Back...with knitting, elvis & other stuff

The other day I was knitting away and started thinking about before the knitting mania set in and how I loved to cross stitch, sew & embroider. This got me motivated to dig out a small little kit that I bought years ago from the dollar bin at Michaels. While I can't say that I will pull out all my embroidery floss/patterns/kits and bury myself in the world of cross's fun at the moment and a nice break from the miles of garter on my Happy Street. Happy Street is almost done! I've got the last few rows of the gray, bind-off & weaving in ends - hurrah~ Mine is knit with Dancing Dog Dye Works Twist Sock --- Michelle offered Happy Street Kits with dark gray, light gray and your choice of color - I picked Beach Glass and I am SO happy with the combo. and lastly there's a little Elvis, because there should always be a little Elvis, right? To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the 68' Comeback, there is a fan mosaic making up this iconic image pretty cool huh? I of course had to send in my photo so I will now be a teeny tiny part of this awesome collaboration!
