I’ve tried some “on grid” curves with the cable chain stitch. No circles yet. I’m still practicing that.

Threading two chains into one line
I came up with this by a look backward. Please, pardon the color change and take a look at the first straight line from the right at the top. That line seemed to fit with some experiments that I’d just done about joining two cable chain rows together. So I pulled it out and restitched it so it could go with my samples for this week.
Why did I pull out this old work? I was struggling about what to do with the cable chain stitch. I know I have more experiments to do with curves and circles, but I was casting about for something else, too. Happily, I remember that I’d done a bit with this stitch last year. I pulled out the sample page and took a look. That’s the great thing about keeping a record. And I see one more thing inspiring me to do a little more in another direction.
