It is sunny, humid and annoying here in Wisconsin. And above is the one flower that decided to grow. Pretty huh? Admittedly it would be prettier if this flower had a few buddies to hang out with- but since I am currently living in crappy college housing, this is all we get.
Anyhow, onto something I made forever ago and never posted about even though I love it.
My first fillet crochet project.
Here it is! It is a table runner created from the Greek Fillet Runner pattern that I discovered on Ravelry some time ago. I wish I remembered more about it, but this runner has been on our coffee table for almost a whole year now so my memory is a little hazy.
I believe this project took a week or so, and I think I only had to frog once or twice a few rows to fix a mistake. The concept of fillet crochet is easy, and it was really fun to see the pattern emerge.
Blocking it was a chore though, I tried to block it with just water to no avail and then I discovered that things like this can be blocked with liquid starch. It took a few times but it finally held 🙂
Anyone else played around with fillet crochet?
