Finished Item - A Crochet Tie

A few months back I knitted a tie for one of the Missionaries from our Church. I didn't really like how it turned out. I obviously did something wrong when following the pattern. It was a very long pattern and I didn't completely understand the directions.

Last night I searched for a crocheted tie pattern and found one on Ravelry. The pattern I chose was called Basic Tie that is Actually Pointy-ended. I finished the tie this afternoon. Talk about easy peasy! I wish I had found this pattern earlier.

The only thing I haven't done is blocked the tie. Its curling a bit. I should probably do that soon so that it has time to dry out properly.

Tomorrow I'll pop over to the post office (if the tie has dried out that is) and send this little baby to its new home. I am sure that the Missionary had thought I totally had forgotten all about posting the tie to him. I have no excuse really :(  I just didn't want to send him that one I made earlier when it didn't turn out like I had hoped it would.

Poetess, I would love to see any ties you make if you do :) I know I was quick making my one but I bet you will be faster than I was and whip one up in no time!

If I do...I'll let you know. I knitted hubby some a long time ago...that he wore maybe once! Grrrr!

That's a shame he only wore it once :( Does he still have it? Maybe he misplaced it (like my lot do)
