I have some time next week to hunt down supplies, so I thought maybe I'd get rolling on the needlepoint/longarm crosstich project I've been pondering for the past several years, and maybe knock out a test piece.  So my CT crafty folks, where's the best place to get needlepoint wool and blank canvas?

A test Monmouth cap to be exact.  Plenty of mistakes in it but I want to plunk it on the head of it's eventual wearer to see how it fits before I start working on the real thing and unravel the test.  Lots of good stuff learned in the process:  casting on, knitting in the round, using double pointed needles, 2 kinds of reducing, and I-cord. 

It was FUN, and went relatively quickly ... hmmm ... it may be a very cappy Christmas...

Yes, [info]zwischenny, I am now well on my way to being a Yarn-ho ...
