such a rosey finish



A finish.


A rosey finish!  Complete with lacey pineapples and pearls.

It is from this book:



And even tho I ran into some major snafus....




...I have come away smitten by the simple beauty that can come from a mere size 7 hook and size 10 crochet thread. 



Yup. Just give me a crochet project, sleeping kitties, flowers, stacked dishes, etc...





...and chaos just seems to disappear.


Hello to a quiet world filled with sweet, simple things.

For awhile anyway.....

Pineapple doilies are my favorite! This is so beautiful, and so is the blue one in the next post. I love the pearls in the roses. Exquisite touch.

Knitting is a wonderful thing! said...

I have this pattern book. I wanted to crochet this one SO bad, but didn't know how much was involved. WOW..Love it! Did it take you much time?
Did you use the exact colors as the pattern? Best one I've seen yet!
