C17: Day 203 – The sword

by Suw on July 22, 2017

I had three goals for today’s work:

  1. Find out of a single strand stem stitch for the edge of the sword works as well as the double strand, and I have to say that I don’t think it does. It just doesn’t really stand out.
  2. Find out if I should fill the whole sword. I think half would be better (I did just over half as I originally thought I’d fill the whole area).
  3. Whether I should use satin stitch or French knots, and I think the knots are better in this instance.

Not much left to test now, just the knight’s robe, and a few more leaf tests. Then I’ll be ready to set up the real thing!
