Stitch your way through the knitter's alphabet from A to Z!
Our newest cross stitch design is now available. I admit, I kinda love it.
I admit I also used my favorite colors - the "quiet colors" - as my color palette. Soft grays and blues mixed with creams, beiges and soft browns, plus a little chocolate for oomph.Then I did a modern, clean and simple finish by wrapping it around a painter's canvas with a deep edge. All in all, I love it!
I think one of the things I love about samplers like this is how you can change how it feels by changing the colors you use. I'm always excited to see what colors you choose to make it yours.
It's also great to pull out just one or two of the motifs for something small and quick. I can absolutely see putting those socks or that adorable alpaca on a project bag! Or how about that fair isle vest?
Available as a printed pattern, a PDF or a kit.

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
