Brocade Doily And More
This is the Brocade Doily. It is not finished per pattern because I chose to end it on round 14 of 23. I did this because I liked this round as the final edging. If I had used #10 thread and the smaller needle called for in this pattern it would of been smaller and I would of continued on with the rest of the pattern but since I did not it was getting real large and the holes or open spots in this doily are very large which is something that bothers me about a pattern so I chose to stop here. Anyway I was doing this for a group that I no longer belong to so I will be giving it to my daughter instead of charity. The group is Vintage Crochet if you want the pattern you will have to join the group, sorry.
I have decided that I will not be making any more doilies with #3 thread. Instead I will make other items with it as I feel it is too big for most doilies. Maybe potholders, washcloths or hotpads would be better suited for this size thread. My hook size for this one was a size 1 steel crochet hook and the thread was #3. This one like the Blue Pineapples has not been blocked, just stretched a bit.
I am now going to work on the kaleidoscope afghan and the amazing star afghan, but I am also working on the final scarf for this month to send to Compassionate Creations. I will share these items with you all later. But I also found a new pattern to make some more scrubbies with from my nylon yarn that I have. But have not started them yet. OH, and I also finished two more lip Balm holders.
That's it today. Ghost, OUT!
