|Pre-Rinse is more than a nickname - it's a calling!|
So my digicam sat in hubby's area, mainly because he has almost the same model of camera too and I was thinking mine was his. I finally remembered where I left it and liberated more doily crochet pics. Here is what I've packaged up to send to my sister for her holiday gifts ... and I beat my self-imposed deadline of April Fools' Day! (Sis asked, "Why April Fools'?" My reply: "It isn't as soon as Valentine's Day!")
|Doily and 4 coasters for my sister|
Mom, I am almost done with your requested off-white doily ... but I used a different pineapple pattern for it. I just started the last round, but it's a bunch of little stitches so it won't go out until probably next weekend because I'll at least block and pin it out for you. Val asked for an in-progress pic of it which I haven't snapped yet. I'll probably take a "before blocking" pic since my before-and-after-blocking coaster pics didn't turn out like I wanted. I saw someone post that crochet people make blocking sound "mysterious and magical" ... it's not mysterious at all (hot water plus pinning out), but it sure does feel like magic as I am pinning out a doily and the pattern stretches out in all its glory!
There was more I was going to post, but just can't recall ...
