I admit it. I didn't know how to make a French knot til this weekend. I swear the heavens parted and angels sang when I finally began making them successfully and easily. You might take a look at my pics to see if I'm making them right, I think I am. There isn't much consistency, though. Some are tight and some are loosey-goosey, but I don't care ~ they're fun! Now I want to find an embroidery pattern that calls for lots and lots of French knots!
I can fairly easily say this is the best embroidery I've ever made. I love how delicate it is, and the colors. I used a single strand of floss for everything except the French knots, where I used two strands. Here is the pattern I used (click on it to see the whole image):
I was so happy when I finished stitching this over the weekend (checking it off that to-do list, woohoo!) but I quickly realized I'm not done at all. What should I put in the middle, if anything? And then what should I do with it? What would you do? I'm all ears ;)
