Lovely Lariat


This pretty piece of lace--which is meant to be worn as a necklace, is that weird?  I don’t think that’s weird, but when you get down to it, it’s only a piece of lace without a clasp or anything—was totally easy, and it also totally took me forever.  The cotton thread was so small, and the hook was so comparatively huge, and it was a little bit miserable to persevere, but I did, and I’m glad.  If I had something filmy and romantic to wear this with, I would, but what I have is a whole bunch of striped pirate shirts, so that’ll have to do. 


This is the Linen Lariat by Amy Palanjian, from this book, which is full of adorable things to make.  A normal person could make it in an hour.  I don’t know why it took me a month, I really don’t.
