I'm not trying to make your neck snap. And, yes, this stitch is about as small as last Wednesday's post was large.
I shared this stitch as a candidate for a border stitch over one row. And then I forgot about it. Seriously. I stumbled back across the border stitch while looking for a small space stitch for the tiniest of houses that just so happened had vertical stripes in alternating colors. Voila.
I stitched the sample with two dramatically different colors of Trebizond Silk to reinforce that point. It would be very cool with two colors or two finishes, or both. As I write this, I ask myself why not make it three colors or finishes? And I say to myself, "Why not?" (Cue everyone on the plane looking at me as if I'm crazy.)
