A New Doily

The latest. It's a smallish one at 11.5 inches, but I love it.
I've made this one before in red and white.
It was the first doily pattern I ever made.
It's a freebie here:  Two-Tone Doily
I used a 1.75 mm hook and #10 thread.

Pat, I use THESE to block all my doilies.
Google "blocking mats" and you'll find different brands at different prices.

My hyacinth is doing great!
More flower buds are opening every day.
And you girls that have had hyacinths before were right...
It smells divine! Wow.
I'll definitely be getting more of these for my kitchen window.
It truly is a magic window. I've never been able to grow anything.
It's an east-facing window, in case you're curious.

I didn't do any knitting yesterday, but I did make lots of pom-poms. I had to watch THIS YouTube video to figure out how to use the pom-pom maker. The instructions on the back of the package were not very clear (at least not to me). But once I got started, I pom-pommed my ass off all evening. I'm making biggish ones for something fun. I'll show you when it's finished in a couple of days. I made 7 last night, and I need 7 more.

The doggies are all snoozing.

I'd better try and get some work done while they're quiet. Some days they drive me crazy wanting in and out or just wanting attention or to be held or to run around like wild cattle, and other days they are quiet and lazy. The weather is good enough most days where I can leave the door open for them to come and go as they please. Then I find leaves and sticks all over the house that they've brought in. They're so funny. What would I do without my little Banshees?

See ya.

  7. My favorite color! That is one beautiful doily. Way to go Pammy Sue. Now I'm all curious about what you're going to do with all of those pom-poms. Your hyacinth is beautiful. I need to try to find one. I haven't had any luck so far.

  8. Love the doily lOVE the dogs. My cats are very similar. some days the want to run and race and go in and out the porch. Other days they are sleep monsters.

  9. Wow, Pam, that doily is gorgeous and I *LOVE* that purple.. wow! I'm glad you have a blooming Hyacinth.. when mine was in bloom I would just bury my nose in it and treasure the aroma. Cute pup. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  10. Scrumptious color on your latest doily!
    It's nice when the sun comes out and the dogs run outside to play like little kids, then crash later for a nap.
    I can't imagine what you are going to do with 14 pom poms.

  11. The more I see your finished doilies the more I want to try one! Thanks for sharing!

  17. You never cease to amaze me with your doilies. This one is just as awesome. That is probably something I would do once I got the hang of it. Making pom poms all day. lol

  21. Beautiful doily Pammy Sue I love the colours, I can almost smell that hyacinthe from here, I must get one. :) xxx

  22. Pammy Sue, your doily is so beautiful. Purple (in any shade) is one of my favorite colors.

    Hyacinths are wonderful smelling. When I lived in my home I did plant some in my flower garden and just loved them.

    Your furry babies are so adorable. I hope you were able to get some work done.
