embroidered yeah

I am going through a bit of an embroidery phase.  I have a cashmere sweater I want to put a motif on but as I was trying to figure what to do, I came across this on the DMC common thread site, and thought I would try it.  I got a mans XL cotton knit, cut it down and re-used the cuffs as neck ribbing, first time I did this, and it worked well, and I hemmed the sleeves and hem with a herringbone stitch on the machine.
