I have created this blog to share my 'doings' with others. Now that I am retired I am able to do all the things I never had the time for. I hope you enjoy my endeavours.

TAST Week 22
Week 22 - Knotted Cretan Stitch
Knotted Cretan is the stitch this week at Pintangle. It is simply the Cretan stitch but with a knot made after each slanting stitch is completed - creates a more textured look. I used just 2 stands of floss - I can see from other samples that the knots look much better with thicker fibers. Took me while before I was not having to contort my body to manipulate the stitches! Still not too sure I got them completely correctly, but had fun trying.
