Not only crocheted in public but under blue late summer/early autumn skies while standing under a Ginkgo tree on the grounds of my daughter's kindergarten, waiting for her to get willing to go home (they never want to stop playing, do they?).
The pattern itself is very funny, like make three steps and then seven knee bends, three steps, seven knee bends... it took me a while to actually gather way. Slooow, sloooow crocheting during the first rows, I can tell you. But all these clustered stitches gave a really pretty, thick fabric. Still soft but with a nice grip. Completely different from what the knitted samples in the yarn store felt like. And so much better.
The border completes the semicircles and shall remind of rhubarb leaves. Well, I see the resemblance, but with rhubarb being one of my favourite vegetables I haven't found in Japan yet I am thinking pretty often of it. Might be pure coincidence then...
Have a nice day!
