Stephanie's Favorite Sky Stitches

Stephanie Dresher-Mandelbaum of Ridgewood Needlepoint has posted diagrams of her favorite sky stitches:  T-Stitch, Alicia's Lace 2, Double Hungarian, Sky 21, Sky 2, Staircase Revisited and Bargello Line Pattern 1 Variation.  She also recommends several overdyed thread brands (Waterlilies, Gloriana, ThreadworXs,  Planet Earth Six Ply Silk, and Thread Gatherer's Silk N Colors) for sky stitching plus metallics. 

Oddly to say, I don't have a favorite sky stitch beyond basketweave.  Wonder what that says about me?
