I am enjoying making this strip of crochet lace edging. Even though it involves using the teeny-weeny hook it is very relaxing and quite pleasing to see it grow and develop. I did start the same pattern a little while ago using black thread but I didn't like the feel and look of the thread, so I have changed to a white thread - much better. The finished piece, about 1.5 metres long, is going to edge the bottom of a plain white roller blind. (Click on photo for a detailed look at the stitches).
This is the book where the inspiration came from. The pattern I am using is suggested for edging a towel (which would be really nice) and there are lots of other very pretty projects in this book. I would love to get my hands on an antique plain linen sheet/bedcover and make the edging for that.
