By the title of my blog you might know where I’m going with this, but for everyone’s safety put your needles away when your not using them! Maybe even buy a cute little needle case or pin cushion. Don’t be like me and unknowingly grab your couch blanket ( blanket for being warm and cozy on your couch) finding the needle you used before as it stabs into your hand, and then in a state of shock throw the blank and needle away from you. Losing the needle you didn’t know was lost once again.
As I began to watch the other half of the video, I start slowly realizing the second half of the video is getting significantly harder. I’ll probably have to get familiarized with them again, once I actually start a real project. but least I will hopefully have the basics down.
The Chain Stitch: a bit more complicated and involved a bit more skill, but was essentially a stitch involving weaving the needle underneath your stitch before creating another stitch.
The Lazy Daisy Stitch: involved me pricking myself more than once and creating the most sloppy looking half flower, but it requires less tension apparently compared to the other stitches, and like I said in the previous blog I tend to strangle my yarn so that could be why.
The Fly Stitch: I really enjoyed this one, It makes little V shapes and is good for filling in plants!
The Satin Stitch: Is used to fill in spaces with color, and was also super easy to figure out and one that I’ll probably use a lot.
The French Knot Stitch: Pretty simply, and just requires wrapping the thread around the needle and going back through. Great for adding Texture and creating little rose bud type stitches.
The last and final Stitch from the video the Long and Short was by far my least favorite, It’s so tedious and at the moment makes no sense to me, as to why you would want to use it when compared to Satin stitch since they are both used to fill in spaces.
Keep coming back for more updates, Next week I plan to attempt the Alphabet!
