Chain Braid Stitch 1

It is always good to learn new things and come out of your comfort zone!
So today I leant a new stitch.Ooh you might say but I enjoyed the researching and threads!
I belong to which is a wonderful site for sharing and being inspired.

On this site there are different groups one being "Take a Stitch on Tuesday", I know it's Friday but I've had a busy week.
Sharon Bloggon organises the stitch and kindly demonstrates it on her website

This weeks stitch is 'Chain Braid Stitch' not as easy as it looks and you can end up with knots!

I found that making the loop before I got the needle involved! far easier. The thread as you can see is twisted in a loop behind. Important otherwise you just get a knot after knot!(I speak from experience).
