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.
