Hello my friends.
Just grabbing 10 or 20 minutes here and there, I've done quite a bit of crochet. I've made a number of small doilies (4" to 6" in diameter), a size that would make a nice coaster.
I've also made a couple of much larger ones that are about 13" across. Here's one.
The other, a white one, is a Christmas present, and I neglected to take a photo of it before I wrapped it.
Most of these at least start out following a pattern, but I've been known to deviate along the way and completely change it. That usually happens if I don't like the way the doily is laying, either curling up because the rounds are too tight, or ruffling because they are too loose. So I adjust... I rip out a lot, too. It would be difficult to duplicate those, since I didn't follow the directions.
Even though there are quite a few here, you might think these took a really long time, but in reality, I crochet rather quickly, so there really aren't all than many hours involved. And the fact that I can pick it up and work for just 10-15 minutes at a time, makes it seem like I didn't spend much time on it at all.
Thanks for stopping by.
