Last Friday I finished my first “centerpiece” doily. The pattern is called Winter’s First Snow and can be found here. I used size 10 cotton thread in “Deep Purple” and a 1.80mm steel hook.
The reason I called it a centerpiece doily is due to the fact that I will be using hand crocheted doilies as part of the centerpieces at my wedding reception. I’m getting married January 8th, 2011, and I have finished one whopping doily. I need to pick up speed. My friend, Sara, is picking up practically all of my slack and has already completed three doilies. So now we have four. I think we will need ten. I have a few more pressing projects to tend to before I continue on my doily quest, but I’ll keep you updated on those projects and any doily progress. 🙂
