Yarn: Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton Remnants
Needles: 4mm straights
Start: Finish:these on Ravelry but that inspiration was in thick wool yarn while I had softer/lighter cotton.
They turned out nice and thick to protect the table but it took some experimenting to get them that way.
...naturally pulling the wrong side into thick ridges that yield a fabric well suited to my purpose.
These two designs, however, used almost all the red cotton so I mixed it with some white, doubling the colours and so, also, the thickness...
I love how the three finished pieces blend in with the vintage trivets that came from my MIL's place years ago...
I also love how Number One Son's Art homework blended in with the whole autumn vibe up north this weekend...
Obviously his assignment was to copy the Van Gogh "Self Portrait with Cut Ear". The colours of the pastels he used are awesome but I think the likeness is more of ex Toronto Maple Leaf Borje Salming than of Vincent!
Or certain large creamy poodles from leaping in off the side of the boat!
