I have an actual FINISHED piece to share today! I made this runner as part of a wedding gift recently, and was very happy with it. I used motif no. 31 from the Japanese book Crochet Lace Doily.
Above is a picture of the piece in progress that I shared back in June!
Once I was done crocheting and sewing in ends, it needed to be blocked out. So I pinned it out with T pins and sprayed it with water. The next day I unpinned it...
And voila! I completely spaced on measuring it, but I made it three motifs wide by ten motifs long. It had quite a bit of ends to sew in with the two colors and the joining motifs, but I think it was worth it in the end.
It was an easy pattern to remember, and it was nice that the motifs were joined as you went. I also liked the red and cream combo. But those ends! Why do I always leave them for last? Haha!!
