Like everyone else, I have been stitching biscornus. I started with whitework ones. The smaller one is the third one from that pattern. (I gave the first one away, but liked it so well, I had to make another one for me.) The third time I varied it by using purple pearl cotton instead of white.

The larger one is wool. I bought the black wool evenweave and wool threads in Iceland in June. I'm enjoying working with them; it's a different feel. I also love the Icelandic patterns I bought.

Just so you have some idea - the larger one is about 12 cm (5 in) across, the smaller one 5 cm (2 in). I have an even smaller one started.
