I rather like it.
This might very well be my next big crochet project.
And on the crochet front again, I recently received a nice surprise in the post from a friend: not only did she send me some Fa-brick to try (I'll report on that soon) but also enclosed some yarns for me to play with. One of them was this Euroflax which is 100% linen. It's quite unusual and I must admit feels a bit like thin rope (or twine) to work with but I'm told this yarn will soften a lot by being washed and dried in the machine. I'm hoping I'll have enough for a short scarf/cowl and can't wait to report back after I've washed it to see what it turns out like. I really like the shade of muted mauve and it will go very well with a cardigan I'm wearing today. I love getting surprises in the post and I'm so appreciative of friends I have made through tatting. Thank you very much M.!
Thank you also to all of you for your wonderful words of encouragement on the last post. I'm working at it and am really very nearly there on the huge doily. Can't wait to show you!
