The table runner is finished!! Hooray!!! And I think I like it very much indeed!! Worth those crippled fingers and the feeling that my left hand had morphed into a claw. Anyway, here it is, in all its glory!!
I'm so pleased with it, it looks so pretty, and it was actually super easy. Easy in the sense that it was a pattern that had to be repeated over 20 rows. Not so easy in the sense that I couldn't quite remember it all off by heart but that was ok. And if you can knit, purl, yarn over and knit two together, then this pattern is for you!!! Easy peasy my dears, but oh so very effective!
And the beauty of it is, it used up two balls of cotton, 100% unbleached English cotton at £2.20 a ball. Bargainous me thinks.
For those interested, I found the pattern here on Ravelry (or here as well).
