so I saw this marilyn monroe cross stitch pattern on google while looking for some stencils and I just had to try knitting it, it turned out better than I'd expected (especially since it was the first time I knitted with more than one colour Tongue)

Great job!  She's one of my favorites.

Could you explain how you knit from a cross stitch pattern?  I have to try one.

Thanks.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.
