      I am starting a linen blackwork needlebook from a kit, and I have a question: it tells you to use Holbein (double running) stitch. However, since the piece will be lined and the back of the work will never be seen, is there any compelling reason to use Holbein instead of simple backstitch? (By the way, in case it matters, this is for my own mundane use - I think blackwork is way OOP for my 12th c. persona.)
