I know it’s St. Patrick’s Day but I just finished knitting an Advent runner for my table and I promised to post the pattern when it was completed. Besides, because of the design, I will leave it on my table for the remainder of Lent now, too.
Here’s the techno-deal for the day . . . the light was perfect, I set the table with winter greens and everything, took the photos and then my camera died. I don’t mean died as in the battery needs charging. I mean died as in there is no way I’m going to get those photos from that camera. So I asked Goodnight if I could borrow her iPod to use the built-in camera. She was kind enough to agree. (Thank you, Honey.) By the time I realized my problem and re-set the table for Advent, the light had changed. I admit that I rushed the second photo shoot because we were on our way out the door for green bagels! ;-) Oh well, you’ll get the idea.
The photo below shows the four purple candles with their respective yellow flames. The image is repeated at the opposite end of the runner. I left the center section a plain white to accommodate the Advent centerpiece of candles and greenery.
The photo below shows the table runner from a different angle. As one moves about an Illusion/Shadow knit piece, the images come in and out of view. I love it!
The following photo is an overhead shot of part of the runner: just stripes.
Like I said, I’m leaving the runner on my table for Lent. I deep-sixed the winter greens and swapped them out for a vase of brown twigs. Two-season table runner!
