I am seeing this pattern turn into a table cloth - I hate multiples as well past 2 as in a pair of oven mitts slippers snow mitts - the cost to make a dozen or even 8 .....
Thursday or Friday I came upon an auction - some company that sells everything in the home... I saw a few things one was a very nice round coffee table... but how to get it home... NO HELP from the people who ran the online auction... bid on a 3 fold room divider screen - outbid and bid on a box of ribbons - instantly out bid.. I should have rebid and drove the price up but didn't... then bid on an 18 x 18 x 16 high box of mixed thread everything except embroider/sewing thread. Many new Southmaid crochet thread mostly white - but some in various weights in all sorts of colours.... and 7 x 100 yard spools of rat tail... mostly new with wrappers that the sticker on one said $15.00 3 white - one black - one red - one dark green and one purple... lots of beading cord... spool of cord for blinds - spool of cooking twine... even a cone of fishing line... and lots and lots and lots more stuff... I filled an ikea bag just taking out the stuff I wanted... rat tail crochet yarn... the rest is in a box I need to go through. I did not bid on any of the boxes of yarn... this woman had been a collector there were several collections of dolls including some Princess Diana dalls new in the box.
Now to find projects that use rat tail... I often use it on made in the hoop cases/purses type things
