Picot Edge

I decided on a crochet edge for this woollen placemat. It's 4-ply cotton which I dyed myself. And the simplest of picot patterns: just two double crochet stitches followed by a single chain to give the hint of a bubble. I've been enjoying the blue-green combo--all the more since it was frowned on in my growing up. Do you remember the saying, "blue and green must never be seen unless there's something in between"? Well here they are, and I do like how they look, so there!

. . . and the inevitable dog hair highlighted by my macro lens, oh well . . .

I'm reminded of a Garfield cartoon where Jon tells the reader that there's always a cat hair in his meals, so this time he's going to fish it out first. This is followed by him completely destroying his dinner looking for the hair, & then Garfield says "oh, silly me, I forgot to put it in there".

BTW, I love blue & green together too. I think it's a great combo, & contrary to popular belief, nothing spontaniously combusts.

Thanks:) don't know that finding the one hair would do it here. I always pick off several, and there's always one more!
