Earlier this month I had made another doily with the same cotton thread and size 7 hook called Woodland Lace. It is just under 12 inches across and was a bit trickier to crochet as I had never done it before and had to interpret the instructions carefully, beginning and undoing rounds until I could do them correctly. I like how it turned out in the end. It's pictured here with the two watercolor instruction books I pulled from my library to share with Anne when she returns.
I used this same cotton on one other crochet project. Mary Janes Farm magazine published a pattern for a hexagon design which I really like. You can put them together in so many different ways. I chose for myself a simple hexagon for my oak lamp stand.
Well, I decided to put away the tiny crochet work for a while. Since I bought some deep gold yarn to make a throw to use in the guest room, my fingers will enjoy the change of tension.
I think I'll also resume work on my cross stitch 4 seasons wreaths during evening movie time. And considering the vast inventory on Anne and Matthias' entertainment computer drive there's lots of good evenings of hand work and movies ahead this winter. Yahoo. Just add hot cocoa and look out!
