WIOSNA 2015 Doily - Round 8

Ta-Da!  It gets prettier each time around.  And more difficult to photograph!

Using size 20 Lizbeth, this doily is now about 13 inches in diameter.  I think size 30 thread may have ended up a nicer size, but I have lots of size 20 thread - so it's fine!

Ready for Round 9 after a LOT of long chains.  I don't much care for them, since they seem very difficult to keep neat and even, but maybe that's just me. This round took about 4 hours and 40 minutes.  I'm now officially obsessed with keeping track of the time it takes :)

Now, to add some more of the variegated thread.  I'll have to experiment with that and see if it will work in the next round, or if I should wait and use it in the final round.  Decisions, decisions!


  1. You make me smile :) I like this and I know what you mean about colors and rounds it is exciting to think of what color you will use I timed the next round at 8 mins. a repeat without rushing because there is a bit to think on and I recall there is 72 repeats, see now you got me timing :) I love the next round and it reminds me of little birds in a cage.

  2. I don't mind timing a repeat, but I try not to time the entire round. I might never finish! Your doily is looking wonderful... looks like I have a bit of catching up to do!

  3. Your doily is looking beautiful!! :)

  4. It's coming along very nicely. You have much more patience than I do when it comes to tatting these large doilies!


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
