Linda at Linda Crochets has inspired me to dig out my Between Meal Centerpiece that I started over a year ago and finish it. She has done some beautiful doilies. Y’all go check out her blog and see for yourself. I got it out last night and crocheted a few rounds during the Golden Globes. It took me all that time to get 3 1/2 rows done. Its so big now that it takes FOREVER to just get around once. This thing is a monster. I still have about 20 rows left to do. I wanted to tackle this pattern just to prove to myself that I could do it, plus it’s just a beautiful pattern. It’s very popular and FREE, and you can see a lot of different color combos on Ravelry HERE. That first one pictured is one my Ravelry friend Jim did in yarn! How cool is that?
Anyway, I just wanted to show mine to you. I thought about just stopping at this point and putting the edging on, but I really want to finish it exactly by the pattern. I’ll be so proud of it when I’m finished, especially if I do it ALL…no shortcuts.
I’ll post an update of my Crochet-Along Doily picture after a few more rows. Three more rows were added after I updated last night, and I have those finished too.
