I just finished the runner below. It is made from 100% cotton, my favorite fiber to work with. The runner is also my first granny rectangle. I've displayed it in the first picture so you can get a sense of its size. However, it was destined for the top of one of our bookcases and now the case looks so much softer; a much better look.
Now that I've finished this rectangle, I'm working on fingerless gloves. I've been working in wool and acrylics but I hear the cotton calling me again. I'm imagining some Victorian adornments to add to their delicate femininity. So stay tuned. I hope to have a cotton pair finished next week.
