Although I am familiar with cretan stitch, I had never tried knotted cretan stitch before so, was happy to add another new stitch to my repertoire!
|Knotted Cretan Stitch|
I added a line to my sampler using a variegated perle cotton thread. This is quite a heavy thread and the knots show up nicely when using it.
I did also try a very small section with a finer silk thread and I found that the knots were nowhere near as obvious and I didn't think the stitch looked as pretty.
I also had a go at creating a mini Christmas tree which is one of the ideas that Sharon mentions in her tutorial. I don't think mine is quite a good as Sharon's but it does vaguely resemble a tree!
Here we are at the start of December and I have lots of projects that I need to get finished up before the end of the year. Hopefully, I will have some to share with you later in the week! Thank you very much for coming to visit!
