Things I love: doilies

So I've been on somewhat of a crochet kick since Valentine's day and I've been making mini doilies--I don't have the patience to make them standard size (as in more than 4 inches).  But this way I get to make a lot more of them!
Most of them are just made up by me, but a couple of them are from Crocheting on the Edge, which is an amazing book.

I also learned how to make a granny square--
I haven't learned how until now, and while I never appreciated them in photos or on websites, I did see the beauty when I had it in my hand. Now I've decided to make an afghan style scarf (ha).  It's going to be something that waits for road trips and plane trips.

  1. GrandmaAnna's mom Gertrude used to make big fancy doilies out of the thinnest crochet thread. Grandma Barbara has them.
