tast 37 – rice stitch

Now this week’s take a stitch tuesday challenge was rice stitch.

It is a needlepoint stitch, and my sample turned out quite like needlepoint. I used socks wool in light grey, dark grey and reddish multicolour, and heel strengthening yarn in a few greys. The wool has the strength you knit with 2.5 needles. The fabric is jute. The dark grey lines are cross stitch or continental stitch. they didn’t turn out too well because the wool isn’t quite covering the fabric. I have pretty much concentrated on playing with shading in that sample, together with some variations. It is supposed tho show a crumbling brick wall when I’m done.

Sorry for jumping between projects randomly. This stitch really didn’t fit any of the ones already started. My WIP bin will be overflowing after that year.
