And the going round 'n round of the crochet hook during those summer evening baseball games and the weekly violin lessons has finally produced this doily that didn't quite measure 33 1/2 inches but came awfully close.
The repetition of this stitching filled those tiny gaps during those just-sitting-there-moments. You know those moments that can only be filled with something that can be easily done. Easily grab-able. Something that travels so compactly in the bottom of my bag. And who cares if it gets a tiny bit smooshed midst the wallet, cell phone, iPod?
And it hit me (after about the 400th row....) that this is filet crochet. Because I always look for filet crochet in a square-ish project I didn't even see the filet pattern when first beginning this.
And now I have some catching up to do with visiting all of you and seeing what wonderful things you have been up to!
