My husband has jokingly called me ‘grandma‘ for years because I’m always knitting or crocheting. I’ve always said that he could start saying that if I ever start crocheting doilies. Well…
Yep, I started crocheting doilies! I started with the doily above, it’s a free pattern called Textured Treasure. I didn’t use the called for 1.75mm hook because that’s just too tiny for me, I used a 2.75mm hook instead. It took me a couple days to finish and I adore the finished product! I don’t normally like to block much but I made sure to block it out the best I could, blocking really helps a doily out!
After my first doily, I searched and searched for my next one. It took a few days to choose but I ended up choosing Debbie by Patricia Kristofferson (paid pattern). I ran out of thread for this one because I used larger hook size again. I went back to buy more of the thread but they were sold out of this one, so it’s going to be sitting and waiting a little while before it gets finished. My hand needs the rest from the small stitching for awhile anyway.
I’m thinking about crocheting my next doily with a sock yarn from my stash, I think that would be a fun idea. I’m so excited about these doilies! I just need to figure out what I’m going to do with them all now.
