This was meant to be posted way back in July, but I kept forgetting about it.
But no more!
Behold, the combined powers of crocheting and tatting!
|It reminds me of the ocean. If the ocean was a cute little basket. And not, you know, wet.|
I know. The tatting is just a simple edging along the top of the basket. But that crocheting was made by me! Without the use of a pattern! I was pretty excited about this.
|Look! You can see through it! A little bit...|
I might not like crocheting as much as tatting, but it does have its moments.
|Look into the depths of the yarn. What do you see?|
My tension with crocheting has been described as "really tight." But I think this turned out pretty well.
|I could be a jellyfish, if my tatting was longer...|
Through it may have been delayed, here is the crocheted basket with a tatted edging.
|The path through a book is long. Remember to bring a friend.|
And to finish this post off, here is the other part of her present. A tatted bookmark!
You didn't think that crocheting was going to be the star of this post, did you?
