usually I don't do a lot of reading patterns, I usually write my own, but I have come across a few that I simply could not resist.
however, I have run into a couple of stitches that I had not heard of before and a couple more that simply needed refreshing in my mind. so I frantically search around searching for a description of the stitch.
mypicot.com has a terrific stitch guide. so I don't forget where to look the next time I come across this issue and for all of you out there, I am listing the link here.
