The Neglected Stitch (Split Stitch)

Mary Corbet talks us through split stitch in this wonderful tutorial. By the way, split stitch not only makes wonderful trees, limbs and stems, it makes terrific animal fur!  I'd suggest using a sharp needle, though, not our usual tapestry needle.  Mary's talking embroidery, after all, so she naturally uses a sharp but we needlepointers normally use blunt tip needles.
