A Spot of Bother and Peking Knots
This week I have been plodding along with the locked back stitch on my piece of Fisherton De La Mere. After completing the circle (well the square in this case) I found I was one thread out. Never mind, I told myself - this is a page for a sample in your NNMSAL and as such will serve the purpose. Correct but I've lost heart because of this spot of bother so a few eyelets and a few wrapped bullions and I put the piece aside. Maybe later I tell myself.
cruel crewel work and once again attempted the Peking Knot which had so roundly defeated me a few months ago. This time I chose a different colour blue floss and away I went - successfully this time. Now whether that is due to the time elapsed, the colour of the floss or a closer attention to the instructions I shall leave for you to decide.
