Experiments with the lace border stitch

I’ve been doing more experiments with the closed lace border stitches.

Here are some comparisons using one strand of pima cotton (left) compared to a Perle 8 cotton (right): first photo shows a very dense over two skip two pattern, the second is loosened up a bit.

The stitch family page is now updated. My bloglines is still bulging.  I’m caught up at work but certainly not at home.

    I’m so pleased to see your experiments with this stitch, as I hope to use it as a border on my current little project. You’ve given me some good ideas, as always. Thanks!
