Crochet Runner

I made this runner last summer thinking I'd give it as a gift. However I didn't really have a recipient in mind. My uncle is celebrating 25 years of priesthood in a few weeks and I thought he'd like it.
It is filet crochet, size 30 crochet cotton, and was made from the American School of Needlework pamphlet "Table Runners and Placemats". I love all the patterns in this collection!

Let Me Start Off With This

I'm finally getting into the blog thing and thought I'd start off with posting a blanket I made for my sister, Luisa. It was a wedding gift for her.
This is called "Bouquet of Shells" and was designed by Terry Kimbrough. The blanket was made with 4 skeins of Caron's Simply Soft in Plum Wine and a J hook. It was very easy and quick to crochet. In fact, I think it only took a week of sporadic crocheting.
