TSTC Week 24: French knots

Oh, no! I some how knew this day would arrive. Sharon b suggested a whole week devoted to French knots. Her only reprieve was to additionally suggest that we could combine them with any of the TSTC stitches to date. Now, there is something that I’m thankful for! It could be a great almost-half-way review.

I must say I do like French knots. They’re beautiful when done well. See all the photos of Sharon’s work posted in the introduction. Those are beautiful French knots! And what a good variety in the puposes they serve. My problem with French knots is making them. There is almost no hope that I can ever do more than one or two with the correct little twist of the thread.
