Comments: I need to do this again in a lighter colour because you can barely see the twisted stitches in this swatch. That said, it definitely helped when I switched to Barbara Walker's "better" method of working twisted (outlined in the intro to the chapter on Twisted Stitches). can you see where I switched methods? Its about halfway up the swatch - look closely and you can see how the stitches make a neater line, with more define gaps between the stitches.
