Crochet Project

After a bit of searching I have found my newest project:


On the website from which I obtained the pattern, they call this particular piece the Between Meal Centerpiece. Clicking on the link will take you to the PDF if any of you want to make it too. :)

I've never completed an intricate crochet project as large as this, and I'm just not sure what to expect. My mother bought me a pattern book last spring and I quickly became addicted to spinning out doilies, and it's safe to say a 5 inch doily takes me between 5 and 10 hours, depending on the intricacies and how many times I have to back track for losing count or dropping stitches. This piece has a 30 inch diameter.

PS. I'm still in New Orleans. I've been sleeping on the floor for a couple nights, but I've decided to sleep in the chair tonight after Jess, one of the girls we are staying with, killed a 2 inch cockroach inside the house. She then informed me that it was a small one... and that they are very common. She says they usually just ignore them, but since we are guests....

Oh! And another PS! Auntie K, if you're reading, I knitted an entire dishrag! Most of it was completed somewhere in the wasteland of Texas. :)

    Me making one of those is the funniest thought I have had in weeks. You are amazing that you have the desire to make those.
