Take A Stitch Tuesday - French Knot

I've set aside work on the weekly challenges for Take A Stitch Tuesday with full intentions of jumping back in shortly. (Insert any combination of excuses here for falling behind - doesn't matter - I'll jump right back in when the timing is right!)

 I was delighted when I read that this week's challenge was the French Knot stitch. This stitch I've played with before! It was covered in the British Embroiderer's Guild Stitch magazine projects online.

Mine is a base of muslin covered with french knots in a variety of silk threads, applied over a river rock with felt base.

I was thinking of those color blindness tests where colored dots form a shape or number to those with standard vision, but form nothing to those with certain color blindnesses.

Ultimately it's just a swirl of colored knots!

Take A Stitch Tuesday 2012 is an online weekly stitch challenge hosted by Sharon B of Pintangle.

Each week she chooses an embroidery stitch which the participants then work in any fashion they choose. All levels of participants can join in - stitch instructions are included on the site, along with some nudges in how to use them in your own designs.

There's a flickr group here, a facebook group here, and a Stitching Fingers group here.
