It looks really good!!!!! I love that design. And I'll waggle my slightly
singed finger at you and sternly remind you that no one would notice any
faults in it at all if you didn't point them out!!!! (I kinda ironed
myself yesterday...that's the danger of pressing that much hem. Got one
finger and my forearm. *sigh*)
Oh, the numper of times I have almost pressed a permanent crease into my left index finger! I feel for you. Not got my forearm yet, but there are still many years ahead oof me on that one!
And thank you. It's the over all impression I'm looking for, rather than the fine scrutiny!
That will be oh so lovely when you're done. It's really kind of soothing to
sit and do some handwork like that sometimes isn't it? I'm doing a
crocheted tablecloth right now......and for the next 10 years or so. LOL
It's a pattern from my grandmother's stash. It's pineapple doilies all
joined together. I think I will need 50 of them to fit my table with both
leaves extended. I have 16 done. lol I don't think it will be ready for
Christmas dinner this year. ;)
All that happens when I crochet or knit is that I tie my thumbs together in ever more elaborate ways! But I do hand finish an awful lot of things that don't need it, or where it can't be justified on the price, because I prefer the look and hand finishing is fun!
