Off grid with the knotted cable chain

Before I get into the knotted cable chain stitch samples today, I want to take a moment to mention that I changed a couple of pages yesterday. The “about” page has been transformed into “a word of welcome” page. Since Sharon b has spelled out the 2008 challenge, I decided that it was high time to change that page from “Where is Sharon b blogging these days?” to “Sharon b’s challenges”. If you’ve not read about the challenge for 2008 please do check out that page for links. I’m looking forward to the challenge and hope many will be joining Sharon in it.

If you have any suggestions for making either of these pages more helpful or effective, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Sometimes I’m the last one to notice when I haven’t written clearly or made a mistake, so I appreciate extra sets of eyes taking a look. Thank you.

All my samples for today’s posts are stitched on felt. And I worked on some curves and circles.

Below are some closely stitched lines. I would like to try beading these before the week is out. And, yes, the bead store was open today!
