Doily FO: "Delilah"

There's one more doily blocked and ready to share-- "Delilah", another by Grace Fearon.  

Same hook as usual (Clover Amour 1.75mm). 

I had a leftover nearly-full skein of orange-magenta-lilac-beige-white Alize Miss Batik (left from "Ygritte").  There was plenty to make this doily, with a little ball left over for my scrap jar. 

I like this colorway-- warm and a bit exotic.  Last time I used it, I remember thinking it was "Halloweeny", and I still think it has a late summer/early autumn vibe to it. 

The AMB thread works really well with this pattern, I think. 

(These photos all start to look alike, at some point... Sorry about that!  I had trouble getting any decent, in-focus photos at all, so I was thinking about that issue instead of getting a variety of angles, etc.)

Some project notes had me a little worried, before starting this doily.  Squares do require a little more attention than circles, generally speaking, but I didn't find this one ex…

Doily FO: "Whitney"

All I ever crochet lately is doilies!  And I haven't really knitted in months!

(Actually, not so long ago I did pick up a long-neglected knitting project-- those worsted weight socks.  I managed to make a mess of them, though.  The decreases went in the wrong places-- don't ask-- and by the time I noticed, it wasn't worth fixing.  They were really just meant to ease me into the world of sock-knitting, so I wasn't that upset.  I ripped them out and the next time I try socks, I'll be using sock yarn!)

Anyway, for whatever reason, all I feel like making lately is doilies.  I did get the itch to knit a hat, recently, but I didn't manage to cast on immediately... and ended up starting yet another doily, instead.  Maybe in the next few days... Doilies are good, lightweight projects for summertime, though, and I have a bunch of great patterns to crochet my way through, still!

Today, I'm sharing "Whitney".  Pattern by Grace Fearon.  (No surprise there.)
