      What makes Blackwork look good is the crisp black thread against the
      white ground fabric. If you do back stitch, you have 2 times as much
      thread on the back of the fabric. To some extent this will show
      through making the blackwork look a bit muddy. It won't be obvious
      but it will be there.
