It’s A Miracle by Culture Club
A.k.a. The Curse of the Grandmother Doily & Table Runner because I had a hell of a time seaming someone else’s work. Because at about this time, I was solidifying my project naming convention, I had to change the name to It’s A Miracle, as I thought it was kind of a miracle that I was able to seam motifs with different stitch counts, etc.

Mycroft asked me if I was interested in a side job of crocheting some crochet square motif heirlooms into a new usable piece for a friend of her’s, Miguel. I thought it should be easy, right. Upon preliminary examination, which is usually not too detailed, I was going to combine all, but then discovered squares of different sizes. After separating different sizes, I realized I had two projects.
2013-01-19: the plan: Table Runner: 4 x 2 (large squares) and Doily: 2 x 2 (small squares). Also discovered that some squares are defective (extra filet on one side)
2012-01-21: having used so much thread already, I decided to buy some new thread
2013-01-22: found one skein the matched to the untrained eye. decided to go lighter in color, so complete project will match. Also picked up a new hook with which to work. woohoo!
