So for my mom's Christmas present, I'm working on a lace table runner. I started at the end of August and am starting to taper off with my motivation. So I figure, "What a better place to get re-motivated?!"  Grin

Here are the details and photos:

Hook: 1.95mm
Thread: Size 10
Pattern: "Table Runner" from the Ultimate Book of Pineapples [with my adjustments because either the pattern is wrong or I missed something... but it still works]

Thanks loca4crafts. The hard part is making visual progress since the thread and hook are so tiny.



And thanks polkadot_it. Its not that hard to learn and once you get the hang of it, I find you can tackle almost any project. Check out the sites posted here. But if you lived near me, I'd teach you for sure. Smiley

It's beautiful, just keep it up, and if it's not long enough by Christmas, just buy her a really little table to go with it Tongue
