Spring Doily 2018, Round 10


Was able to go faster with this round, and I think if the rings are smaller I don't have to take the time the let the shuttle untwist before closing the ring and that is very time consuming.

I really wanted to use this color yellow, and once again had to figure out how to get the same size ring as my standard size for the doily which is 80
I stuck to 4 double stitches but when all was said and done I had to do what Jane Mactats did and add even more to the long connecting parts on my size 40 thread with 6 chain ds. when 4 or 5 should have worked. 

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend

  1. Do you think there are 2 hands at work on Renulek's doily which is causing tension issues? As in the antique books? In fact I noticed this even in some of Blomqvist & Persson's patterns.
    Those are enticing baskets and happy g'kids :-D

  2. Yes, very good idea something is a miss I noticed this with some of Jan Stawasz patterns too. You make a good point. Sometimes I think that after the item was made they forgot to right a part down hand then tried to count the double stitches and you know and I know sometime a double stitch can hide 🤔
