Day 81/365: The Day I Finished My Short Crocheted Table Runner


Remember these three orphan balls from the stash?


I took that ball of white yarn there on the left and started this:


It was an inexpensive acrylic yarn that I’d had for a very long time.  I just wanted to use it up and turn it into something prettier than a lone orphan ball that was sitting forgotten in the stash.

Several inches along into the project, I realized I was going to run out of yarn pretty soon, and it would be way too short for a scarf.  But never mind.  It would do as a table runner.


A short one, as it turns out.  Which is okay, because all you have to do is throw a plant on the table, and everyone will be looking at that instead.
