Filet Crochet Anniversary Present

Today marks five years since my husband and I were married and sealed together for time and all eternity.

A few weeks ago I decided to add some lettering to the filet crochet temple from a previous post and turn it into an anniversary present for my wonderful man.

I still need to finish the edging and blocking, but here’s the piece so far.

I can’t wait to hang it on the wall as a reminder that as long as we’re true to each other and to God, not even death can part us.

Happy Yarning!

Fun with Filet Crochet

So I know I said I wouldn’t start any more crochet projects until I finished my Hufflepuff scarf. In my defense, the scarf is almost finished.

Here’s my newest project:

Filet crochet!

This is going to be a picture of the Provo Temple to hang on my wall.

Whenever I saw filet crochet in the past I assumed I didn’t have the patience for it. But I fell in love with a beautiful piece in Provo last month. I finally decided to give it a chance, and I’m surprised at how quickly it comes together.

Here’s the pattern I drew up.

I have crazy plans of piecing together different colored fabrics as a backing to look like sky and mountain behind the temple. We’ll see.

Anyway, my point is that filet crochet is actually kind of magical and not boring after all.

Happy Yarning!
