Second side

Tonight I continued on to the second side and worked it in the DMC perle cotton. In the last post I described how and what I did and did not tell you the name of the stitch. Jane in Chilly Hollow picked up on that and mentioned in the comments that it is the Spring Stitch, and in case you don't read the comments, my apologies for not telling you! The number of steps in this stitch is time consuming, but I feel I am making good progress getting around the square.

The only reason I recognized the name of the stitch is that Carole Lake has it diagrammed on her website and it looked very interesting, although I haven't found a good place to use it yet. Here's the link (you'll have to copy/paste as I can't put a hyperlink here).

It looks grant on Ecrusheen. Nice photograph, by the way.

To help Jane out with the hyperlink, let me try:
