Hooray for two crafty posts in one week!
Today I am excited to show you my Autumn Doily. I began this shortly after I made my two new mandalas back in October, stashing it away in my crochet corner and working on it a bit at a time over the last few months. It was a bit tricky, this pattern, and required some serious counting and concentration, so I found that I could only work on it when I was certain I would not be interrupted.
stash busting creations, I have made a considerable dent in the amount of yarn I have in my cupboard. In fact I noticed yesterday that if I am going to do any more crocheting with cotton I am going to need to replenish my supplies...yarn levels are at an all time low and there is a severe shortage of color options.
You know, its funny, I never thought I would crochet a doily. I used to think they were old-fashioned and unnecessary, but my opinion has certainly changed after making this gorgeous one. It adds a little cozy to the room, a little handmade, and I love everything about that. And while I used mostly autumn colors this time, I think this pattern would work up beautifully in bright, cheerful, summer colors.
