I have been working on an unusual looking filet crochet piece. I don't like filet crochet but have made this one before ages ago and want to use different colors. The main part is white but I haven't decided what color for the edging. Should I use variegated or shaded or solid? I want it to look classy. It has seven motifs of which I have three finished. I need to get a thimble because I have nearly poked a hole in the tip of my middle finger on my left hand.
