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).

Oh it's lovely. Thanks for the pattern link, I'll be knitting this for a very good friend of mine, she'll love it.

I'm sure your mum will be very impressed when she sees all the lovely things you've been busy making these past few months.

Wow so impressive. It's so pretty. I'm always amazed that people can knit things like that - you know they seem so pretty and delicate that it's like they must have been made by a machine or something.

I'm not making any sense am I?

Anyway, it's lovely. That is all.

Well done you.


Heather said...

it's superb!
Having new yarn waiting to be used is a real incentive to finish a WIP, isn't it?

Gina said...
