In the process of binding off Rose of England, a design by Marianne Kinzel. I'm knitting the 'tea' sized, but as a shawl.

A Rose/Raspberry (in natural light it's an 'Old rose' shade) of Douceur et Soie; size 6 US needles.

14 of the 50 motifs cast off at this point.

Picture attached.

This design is technically a tablecloth - the "tea" size is for a tea table and is only 150 rows; the full size is 200 plus rows and much much larger. (Kinzel has several pattrns where she does something similar)

*BUT* for a tablecloth of either size you'd be working on much smaller needles then I'm using.
