I found great blog on cross stitch. A lot of pictures, charts, mostly in nice combination of red and white. List of freebies is here. Some of those designs could be used for knitting too. Btw. blog is written in French, but I donot think, that we need to understand language for this type of embroidery.
Several days ago I made new web. Designs for cross stitch embroidery. I like to play with colours on grid paper or excel sheet and some of my ideas you can see on my new website Free cross stitch pattern
I love to browse internet and to look what knit, sew, crochet... people in other parts of earth. REcently I found interesting web of group of Egyptian designers with knitted and crocheted things. You can buy them or you can only browse and admire creativity of designers.
Finaly I took picture of TIF January. Colours are not precisely same as on Sharon´s colour scheme, because I wanted to use silk and I didnot found exact colours in my fabrics. Lines are created by knitting yarn sewn on fabric with machine.
