More Morimoto?

For sure! I am enjoying this pattern immensely, 
with the exception of this final row.

For each four stitches, it seems I have had to un-tat three. Silly, numb-minded mistakes. Unnecessary errors. Not certain why, but at the beginning of this round I simply could not keep the count correctly.

That said, now midway around this final lap. Relaxed. Only six more motifs to chain over; then 16 small joining clovers.

Still Not Finished, But Nearly!

To finish will be a quick damp pat-down, as it requires needs no real blocking. It holds its shape amazingly well, considering it is rather large.

Then it will get tissue-rolled into a paper towel tube for final wrapping and a ribbon. Can't wait! 

Finally, Fikkert will follow. : ))

  2. It sure is pretty! I have my Fikkert book, but I'm not sure I'll be able to start when you do. Two doilies at one time might have to be my limit!

  3. Looks great! I seem to make those unnecessary, dim-witted mistakes on the easiest stitches, while the more difficult patterns end up done correctly. Must be getting too comfortable with the easy stuff! It will be great to get this beaut done and start on the next one.
