Birthday Crochet – The Ultimate Celebration

This weekend saw Pia & Thue’s 40th birthday and I celebrated with a spot of crochet – the ultimate from of celebration if you ask me. Pia & Thue are avid bikers, this summer saw them “do Sweden” on their bikes and next year they are planning a very long bike trip in America… What could I do but crochet them a motorbike doily to celebrate?

I played around with the rough image of the bike and bikers and then softened the image by using some edgings from my Great Granny’s sampler book which I have found inspiration in and written about many times before. I mounted the bike on a gorgeous tangerine coloured card with rice paper behind as I have a feeling it will end up on a wall at Thue & Pias

Pia & Thue have been graceful enough not to comment on the fact that the bike very much resembles the 3 gear Puch moped I rode in my teens…

Happy Biker Birthday folks!

Note: I used Ecru DMC 100 and a 0.75 mm crochet hook.
