I love this! I have a question for you. I was recently working on a french knot font, and I had to outline my letters first to keep the knots in order. Did you outline your silhouettes first or just knot it up?  Smiley
thanks!
Yes I did, with back stitches of same color as french knots.
I made the french knots very close to the back stitched line, so you can't see it.
I used two shades of color for each silhouette. Dark shade all around the silhouette (first layer, and nearest knots), and a lighter shade for more distant knots.
This accentuates the effect of movement, I think...
