First of all I LOVE the plain Vandyke Stitch (TAST #76), but dislike the beaded version. Why? I think the beads take away the beauty of the basic stitch and I got frustrated wrapping the previous stitch.
They were just slightly better on the sampler.
Now for the Bullioned Vandyke Stitch I got even more frustrated and flustered which is a pity as I have no serious problems with the plain Bullion Knot Stitch (#19).
One more thing made me confused. Which stitch is #116 and which is #117? In the post at Pintangle it appears #116 is the beaded and #117 the bullioned, but on the list on TAST FAQ they are they opposite.
Maybe it was just not my TAST week!
