Doilies?

I never imagined that I’d actually make a doily!  But, never say never, eh?  I have just finished making a colourful blanket with 8ply wool and just felt like making something ‘finer’.  So here it is:

20150301_134047It’s about 8″ across, and made with 4ply cotton.  I used a 2.5 hook.  I got the pattern from here.

I have to say, it was enjoyable to make and a bit more interesting than the granny squares I’d just been making.  I has spurred me on to my next project which is a cushion cover made in the same cotton (different colour).  I might even dig out the crochet thread that I found amongst my grandmother’s things years ago, along with crochet hooks SO fine my eyes squinted just to see the hook, let alone actually using them!  I guess that’s the beauty of hobbies….the opportunities to try new things.

In the meantime, I’ve got no idea what I’m going to do with this doily….
