Which way do you stitch, i.e. do you stitch /// followed by \\\ on top, or the other way around \\\ followed by ///? Are you left- or right-handed and do you think that this affects the way that you stitch?
I stitch /// first followed by \\\. Once upon a time, I stitched the other way. Then I did a couple of needlepoint pieces that I started in the top right hand corner doing the continental stitch ///, and then the habit apparently stuck. I am right-handed and I think this effects how I stitch because I try to start most designs in the top right hand corner, especially if I'm working in hand, and that just led to me stitching /// first.
