Diagonal Tent Stitch - Diagonal Basketweave

Recently my buddy Marianne (of Newneedlepoint.com fame) asked me to look at a copy of a rare booklet by Katherine Ireys about basketweave called Diagonal Tent Stitch.   I had never seen this 1974 book before and found it fascinating.  I won't repeat what I said (just read the link below) except to repeat if you are interested in better technique in basketweave or are a left handed stitcher who wants to master basketweave,  this book and Davie Hyman's Diagonal Basketweave are books you should get your hands on whenever you see a copy.  They are classics.
