I've been crocheting for a few years now and this last week I finally decided the time had come to make a typical crochet classic..... a doily:
Debbie Stoller doesn't seem to like doilies, how about you? Do you make them or use them in your home?
I'd never made one like this before because I'd never stopped to look for a pattern but now I have made the first one I feel like this could be the beginning of an obsession :)
I used Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread 10 for this and a 1.75mm hook.
I am a huge fan of Aunt Lydia's. Their threads are lovely to work with and there are all kinds of colours. They block like a dream too and I love to block!
I buy mine online and even after paying the postage they are still cheaper than most other crochet threads.
To be honest I LOVED making this. It took me three days and the whole time I was making it I couldn't wait to finish it to see what it would look like. I even enjoyed using the 1.75mm hook!
This is one of the few times I've actually enjoyed working in the round on a project too. Do you like to work in the round on your crochet projects?
Have a lovely Sunday!
