My star project has taken a back seat as I try my hands out at crocheting using yet another variegated thread, this time in combinations of off-white, pink and yellow. It is looking only slightly better then the one I did using the pink and off-white variegated thread in that, the blotches of colours are not so blotchy.....well, kind of! LOL!
I tried ironing it tonight and it looks like it can hold it's shape. I think I will go ahead and finish this piece, and at the end of it, I will spray block it as shown here at this blog (http://grannyalong.blogspot.com/2007/04/how-to-spray-block.html) put up by Mel. Thanks, Mel! Thanks to Janet too for her suggestions.
BTW, here is a small coaster I made for Margaret as a token of appreciation for hosting the Library Day at her house on 31 March. Thanks, Margaret! Can we do more of this? *wink*
The coaster is nothing great, really, but, it was an attempt at trying something small and different. I just hope that Margaret will find some use for it.
