Last attempt before the real one!!!!!

As you know, I've crocheted some table runners during the last month ( herehereherehere and here !!!), just to be ready for this important occasion (please, check Grande Project-3 at crejjtion!!!).....

Maaike gave me a kind advice about my table runners attempts : to avoid the curling (and so the blocking process!), I had to put less stitches (and less increasings) on both sides of my table runner...
I've followed the clever suggestion, so that I did a new one!!!

I found some cotton balls I bought when I was still in Egypt (Rozetti Naturel Cotton) and with a 5mm hook I tried again....

Some photos, please....

No more curling!!!!! I was happy, so happy!!! It's a pleasure to learn always some little tricks, that simplify your crocheting lifestyle!!!! ;oD

After this good job, I think I deserved my cup of herbal tea with some balinese sweets.....yummy!!!

The official table runner, made with the cotton "Catania Grande"(here) is on the hook right now.....
I'll post some pictures of it very soon...Stay tuned!!!!
