This week, the stitch was the Knotted Loop Stitch and while it wasn't that difficult to do, I couldn't get to it until last night (lots of late nights - Girls Night Out on Tuesday, Quilt Guild on Friday - and early mornings - volunteering on the NPR phone bank Thursday and Friday - means I didn't get all that much sleep and so wasn't competent to decipher the instructions!) Here is my attempt, the first failed (the fish on hte left really turned into mirrored blanket stitch) and the actual stitch on the right:
It's a shame the fish didn't work out as I really saw fish bones in this stitch if the arms were varied in length. Oh well... maybe I'll take it out someday and redo it!
