Currently, a couple of larger project are coming to fruitation. After the scrappy sockyarn blanket from last week, here's a table cloth I've made for my mom.
The diameter is roughly 180cm and about 3000m of cotton were used to knit it (Magic No. 8 by Zettl). In the end I had 2345 stitches on the needle, which made for very long rows.
I really enjoy knitting lace, but normally don't have much use for it. Luckily my mom has a nice round bistro table and with a neutral table cloth unterneath, I think it will look great.
I did steam press the edges. It didn't go perfect, a few of the wedges got a bit brown spots (I don't think I singed it, but I'm not sure what else it could be), Maybe turn that side to the wall ...
