Victorian Crochet Lace






I'm in love with this pattern.

Pattern:  Victorian Washcloth, Terry Kimbrough, In Love With Crochet (book)
Thread:  Aunt Lydia's #10, Natural
Hook:  2.0 mm
Size:  10" square

ME:  Look at this.  Isn't it pretty?

CAP:  What is it?  Another doily?

ME:  No.  It's a Victorian Washcloth.

CAP:  I can't wait to wash my butt with it.

ME:  (Blink-blink)

  3. I read your conversation to Hubby and he thought it was hilarious because he also thought it was a doily. It IS beautiful and I would probably use it for a doily. :-). You do such pretty work.
    Blessings,

  9. Ok. You got me giggling with this one. So glad to have popped by. Hope you had a great holiday. Thought of you while watching the Globes last night. Off to jazz as soon as Scott finishes shoveling. Fyi sorted my 15 crate yarn stash yesterday. Boy did I have a lot. Did not get rid of it all but am giving a lot away. Hugs

  10. Pretty, pretty, pretty. Reminds me of making dishcloths for a friend and she vowed they were too pretty for washing dishes so she uses them as doilies under her potted plants.

  11. I really don't know if I would use it as a washcloth. It's too beautiful for that. Maybe on the back of the toilet for decoration but most likely would use it on my table or on the back of a chair. Your hubby sounds like a funny man! LOL

  13. It's the daintiest washcloth I've ever seen. I thought it was a doily too. It's too pretty to use in the shower. :)

  15. Gorgeous! I think it would look pretty on a bedroom dresser or nightstand as the wood would peek through the openings. Hope you are having a good day and don't work too hard! Take care, Heather

  17. I do so love all of your doilys (doilies ?). I started off with doilies when I first started doing crochet (over 50 years ago) and made so many of them and am still using them. At 72 years young I figure I probably have enough BUT---- you have made me yearn to do the doily thing again. Darn, that means I will have to buy some thread! With all the books that I still have it won't be a problem finding a doily or 2 or 100! OK, I'm off to Hobby Lobby first thing in the morning.

  18. I also thought it was a doily. Looks like a lot of work for a washcloth. Very nice though. I really love that blue and green doily you posted about last week. I think I'd like the pattern for that - must check out the link to the similar one. I'm relieved to be back online - twas horrible without it for 5 days !!! iPad/iPhone were a 'band-aid' back up but not easy. xox

    I love it and I thought your pictures were good, but it is even prettier in person. thanks you so much!
