I am bit late posting this but better late than never. The running stitch is new to me. Such a simple stitch you would think I would have used it prior to this. Sharon B's samples at http://www.pintangle.com/journal/2012/3/6/take-a-stitch-tuesday-week-10.html#comments are stunning. The top picture is shows the running stitch done with wool. The bottom picture shows that I wove some interesting knitting yarns through those stitches. It is not quite finished but it won't take long to complete.
