My latest project is cross stitching on the afghan stitch. I found a pattern for an Aidia fabric afghan and am trying it on the afghan that I made in the afghan stitch. My dilemma is finding yarns in the correct colors. I was wondering if anyone here has done this and how they managed to get colors that correspond to DMC thread. I am having a great time with this and have collected numerous heirloom patterns to cross stitch, after I finish my current 'neverending afghan'! Has anyone used embroidery floss on their afghans? I had thought about doubling up the floss and seeing if it covers enough of the yarn to look decent, or if the difference in textures would look odd.
