Day 11: A WIP

Day 11:  A WIP

This is the yellow doily I've mentioned a couple times before.  It's the "Double Pineapple Doily" from American Thread Company.  The pattern's from 1952 and available for free online.  It's written a little differently from modern doily patterns, but it doesn't take long to get into the groove of it. 

Yellow is not one of my very favorite colors, usually-- and I think the thread looks more lemony and less golden yellow "in person", too, which puts it further down the scale in my favor (g)-- but for some reason I decided I wanted to make a yellow doily, so here it is, in progress.
