I finished up a round on the doily I’m making for my friend’s wedding gift. I take a took at the doily and how it’s coming along and I notice it’s bunching up in this one section. Oh no! Where I was supposed to split off the shells for between pineapples, I didn’t at this one pair. I look and thought I had to go back 5 rounds. My hubby says, “we’ll just get her a gift certificate from the mall.” I said, “I wanted to save money by making her something, and I wanted to present her with something that I made.” He told me it wasn’t worth seeing me getting frustrated.
Well, I frogged the 4 rounds I need to frog just now and I’ll see how far I get on it today. I just need to pause between rounds to make sure things look right. I don’t know that I’ve ever made a mistake quite like this. I mean, I’ve made mistakes before, but they didn’t affect the pattern enough to frog it. This one HAD to be redone.
Well, we’ll see what comes of this.
The table runner I made for my friend’s wedding shower is finished. Her shower was today and, yes, I was crocheting it at the shower. Now, I have read that it’s not polite to crochet the gift you are giving at the shower, however, I did ask permission, and my friends know me well enough that I am ALWAYS crocheting. They did not think it rude of me, at all.
It measures 20″ wide by 55″ long. I crocheted it using size 10 white, cotton thread. I used a pattern from Magic Crochet, December 1988, Number 57. It is #19 in the book, Oval Runner by Elisabeth Hiddleson. I think I used a size 7 hook. It had a stone handle and I forget what size it is. 😀 It’s between a 7 and 5. I started it Good Friday and finished today, so it took a week and 2 days.
