First bits of my new project

I started this project in order to have something for our journey. It will be a large project, I guess. I made a sketch to plan it a bit, but in most cases, the finished piece turns out quite differently. But that's part of the fun.
This one has a slightly primitive appeal, as I wanted it to. The red wool looks so neon! More than in daylight. When it is used up, there will be no more of this kind. It is not produced any more.
Funny feeling. Will I have to go back to untwisted sock wool?

We'll be starting in a few days. So this is not my last posting before lifting off, I guess.

It does look bright! It will be fun to see how this turns out!

It does look bright, but I just love red and this is coming along wonderfully. Great piece for travelling.
I look forward to seeing more of it. I was very taken with the Estonian embroidery and have googled to find more wonderful designs.
