As you can see I’m more than halfway through the background of m Game Needlepoint piece and I just love it. I changed to the next stitch on the list when someone was called by name or when my cat mewed.
If I was in the middle of a stitch when the event occurred, I changed for the next stitch.
This is a close-up of the top part of the mini-sock, a big block of background. As you can see the different textures of the stitches add lots of variety. I think using a hand-dyed thread with its subtle changes in shade enhanced this.
All in all, a really fun way to stitch a background, I’m going to use it on the matching bunny mini-sock as well.
