Hello Lovely Friends about the blogosphere!
It is THAT time of year, we are in grayscale. Sun? No! Groundhog day is just around the corner. The tomatoes seeds I planted have sprouted, and one sunflower. I'm nursing the the Hungarian Hot peppers and butternut squash, I had a problem last year with the peppers and ended up buying some plants. I really would prefer to grow from seed. I have plenty of time to replant and make another go of it.
I have finished up the Wind Rose Doily, I ordered a 18" metal craft ring from JoAnn's. They didn't have any in stock they never do of things I would like to purchase, so I had to order it and have it delivered.
The doily measured 15" without the last 2 rounds because I played yarn chicken and I lost. It turned out ok, because it fit just right within the hoop. I attached it with a simple sc ( single crochet) and a chain 1, easy to remove if I decide to.
I am pleased with it, and now want to make a few more of different sizes, or maybe seasonal colors when I run across a pattern I like. I am particularly fond of this type of pattern, open and lacy. There was another similar to this one I liked and tried to make for years called Snowflake. It's not that I cannot crochet it, but it is a diagram kind of pattern which uses symbols rather than a written pattern. I just can't seem to get together with that.
It gets a bit washed out in the window, so I laid it on the carpet.
Thank you as always for stopping over!
