    What a smart idea to use these on towels.

    Hi. I’ve admired your blog for quite awhile now. It’s inspired me (and apparently my husband, who has asked me to teach him to cross-stitch!) to embark on some gamey geeky goodness stitchery of our own – his of the Zelda variety (I’ve never played – yes, he was shocked too) – me of the King’s Quest variety – I found some sprites online, and even have a chart made up in photoshop.

    The question is, how do I equivalate (is that a word?) web/hexadecimal colors to DMC/floss colors? How do you do that? Take a color from a screen/game and figure out what floss color it’d be?
