Newbie question - can't see my work!

mommydOctober 21, 2008

I am a knitter turned needlepointer/cross-stitcher, but I'm having a problem. With knitting, I had no problem working on my lap or seeing what I was doing. But I am doing my first needlepointing project - a very small 14 mesh pattern - and it's very hard to see my work over my lap.

Do most people put something white (towel, pillowcase, etc.) on their lap when they work? Maybe because it's a looser mesh, I can see through it more. I really enjoy it, but I need some ideas!

Thank you so much for your help!
