You can learn to love......Oyster stitch

Learning this stitch was about as difficult as trying to open the real thing!

I thought I would show this piece in all its horror. I could not get the hang of this stitch, I ranted and raved at it, pulled it out, pulled it into knot. I was just about to give in, when the penny dropped. You can see on the white lines how I struggled but fared better with the rougher, thicker yarns which gave a very satifying texture.

The inspiration came from this picture from Tony Boon's site which has some great photographs and some fun things too.

One of these days I will try and do it justice.

Congratulations to all those who have managed to produce beautiful samples.

I have to say that I bookmarked your site soon after TAST started as I find I keep coming back to you again and again because I like your style of work.

Thank you for your inspirations.
