A Twitter cross stitch experiment #tweetXS

Today I’m going to try an experiment that’s been floating around in my head for a while – I’m going to put out a little cross stitch pattern, line by line, via Twitter. This is only a 20 stitch x 20 stitch pattern, so nothing too complicated for a first shot! And if it all goes well, I’m planning on continuing it weekly… say, a TweetXS Tuesday?

So I’m starting it today: at 4pm Central European Time (3pm GMT for the Brits, 9am EDT for the Americans, and, sadly, 3am EST for the Aussies). I’ll post them line by line every, say, 10 minutes to my twitter feed. If you can’t join in live, search for the hashtag #tweetXS to gather them all up after. Or on my facebook page. Let’s see how it goes!

    I love it! What a great way to share a pattern. I’ll get started on my stitching when I get home :-)

    So how did this go?

    I was pretty happy with it! I found some of the symbols (especially the ^) a bit difficult to read in Twitter fonts when next to each other, so I’ll pick better ones next time. Also the twiiter -> facebook updating didn’t work very well (they kept arrriving out of order), so I’ll probably stop that bit. But on the whole I had fun and got some good feedback, so it’ll go ahead next week again: same time, same place!
