Lady Elaine

This was simply called a "picot square" in the Reader's Digest source book, which makes sense because it's finished with a boarder of picot stitches and all, but it's just so...fancy. It seems like it should have a grander name. I thought that the moment I finished it - that it must be called something utterly fabulous.

I smoothed it out across my knee and immediately reached for the book to double check the name of this masterpiece.

Picot Square.

It's a shame.

So I shall call it Lady Elaine.

Shakespeare might have been right about the rose and all, but sometimes something sweet really does needs a good name.

Oooooh, I love the color of this one! The pattern is beautiful too. It has a far east feel to it. More jewel tones please. Because it's all about me!
