World Cup Project

(Crochet * Stash-buster)

There is a world-wide party going on: the Soccer World Cup, Brazil 2014.  I am not a huge sports fan, but I can´t help to turn on the TV to follow the soccer games.  Why I am telling you this?  Well, because I decided to start a new crochet project while “half-watching” the games... 

Hay una fiesta a nivel mundial: La Copa Mundial de Fútbol, Brasil 2014.  No soy una gran fanática de los deportes, pero no puedo evitar participar de cierta forma de esta fiesta.  ¿Por qué les cuento esto?  Porque decidí comenzar un nuevo proyecto en ganchillo mientras que “medio veo” el Mundial… 







I am making a lacy table runner for my dining table, with fine cotton in double thread.  I will be using a motif I found in Pinterest.  The motifs will have color in the center and off white on the background. 
It is a big project, so I am wondering how far I can go while the World Cup runs…


Decidí hacer un mantel en ganchillo para la mesa del comedor, con hilo doble de algodón.  Estaré usando un motif que encontré en Pinterest.  El centro de los motifs irán con colores otoñales, y el fondo en color crema. 
Es un proyecto grande, así que me pregunto cuánto lograré avanzar en el transcurso de la Copa Mundial…

  1. Those colors are great. It's going to be so pretty. I showed a picture of a square for a similar table-topper I'm making on my blog today. I started it a couple of years ago and never picked it back up. Maybe I should do that. Enjoy your soccer and table runner!

  15. Ha, ha - this is soo true!! We never interested in football (or soccer), but when the world cup began we started to look nearly every game - the last ones start too late (at midnight). Lovely project, it will become a pretty table runner. I love this lacy impression and your earthy colours. Enjoy your crochet and your "half" soccer world cup! :-) Greetings from Germany, Sabine.
