Take a Stitch Tuesday: Knotted Cretan Stitch

TAST this 22nd week featured the Knotted Cretan Stitch. Hmm. What do I want to say about this week’s challenge. It was a challenge? I participate in this embroidery stitch challenge for fun. And to learn new stitches. This week was heavy on the “learning” and not so much on the “fun.” I had real difficulty interpreting the instructions for this stitch…and I do not usually have that problem. I had substantially limited time, so the added frustration of having to take time to figure out how to complete this stitch was not especially welcome.

BUT, I persevered!






And the project, so far:

      Thanks, Karen. The host of this challenge has the directions on her website (pintangle.com). And I didn’t have alternative instructions in any of my embroidery stitch books. Sigh.
