I had a go at square stitching with this little design I knocked up. The oen is there to show you scale.
I did enjoy it once I got going. And it is neat, even in thise beginner project. But it is much slower than the loom. This tiny project (10 by 40) took me nearly two hours when I can do a cuff in about the same time (20 by 60).
I want to try Delica beads (the really tiny ones) so I thought I may have to do it square stitch. But I'm not sure now. I do so like the speed of the loom.
