Well, it took about 313 pins to block! I had 200 of the little yellow ones and quickly found it wasn't enough! So I stole some of mom's Smiley It didn't take too long to do once I got the hang of where the loops lie. I just got done unpinning it and it's beeeeautiful! Smiley I meant its not perfect because I saw that in one of the corners (thanks to the picture) the pattern was bent up - i fixed it a little! I was thankful the color change came at the end-ish of a pattern repeat. Any other placement I would have had to send back my 7 balls of thread I had just ordered!!!! It blocked on my bed while I worked today. It was there for about 9 hours, and the fan was on all day so it was dry when I got home (thankfully. otherwise....I don't know where I would have slept!! couch??) needlecrafts just come naturally to me I guess. I learned young and have a knack for it! Thanks guys!!!

I just had to jump in and say this is gorgeous. I'm glad to hear that you used crochet cotton because the first thing I thought of was that it's almost too nice to use. Of course in cotton it is very washable and I think you should use it every opportunity you get!

ehm.. I am new here, but I have to comment something after seeing your beeeaaautiful tablecloth. I think it is too pretty to put on the table. Actually you can fold into half (become triangle) and use it as a shawl. As for the color change, it happened to me when I did my KIRI shawl also.

My mom said I should use it as a shawl also! I think I might. I don't really have a use for it as a tablecloth right now anyways. The better to show it off!

I love how the pattern actually looks like petals falling from the center.

Love it!  I don't think I have the skills or the patience to ever attempt anything like that.  Hats off to you Wink
