Slowly but surely, I am finishing those promised 2019 articles in my long-term WIP pile. The latest finished object is this sweet filet placemat which shows intertwined Celtic hearts. I used Lydia’s #10 crochet thread in aqua, and it took an entire ball, plus a little more of a second ball.
The pattern is from Michelle at Nezeumi World. I’m looking forward to showing her the blocked item. As I mentioned in my previous post, I am using a child’s play mat and pearl-head pins to block the article. I sprayed it with lavender water and it is now drying on my patio. The blocked size is about 45 cm x 38 cm.
It dawned on me as I was posting these photos that just about every element contains hearts, although it wasn’t planned – the bowl, the blocking mat, and of course, the placemat. Sometimes my subconscious works in mysterious ways.
I plan to give this Valentine beauty to my best friend’s mom, who lives in Iran. I hope she likes it.
