Flowery Lace

Hello All,

Flowery Lace- Yeah It sounds nice to pronounce and hear it.
Well I made the doily which I mentioned in my last post and this is the name I could think for it.

It is a pineapple pattern and since I was working from stash, I ran out of threads twice.
Actually I did foresee that.

The pattern is here, I skipped the last 2 rows as I was doubtful whether I’ll have enough of the dark green thread.
The inspiration came from here and here.
But I should have changed threads in the beginning of the round, instead when I ran out thread I left the old one and started with new color, the change was very subtle from light green to dark green while crocheting. But after blocking 🙂 it is more prominent.
Blocking a doily not only evens the tension and opens up the lace, it also shows up the mistakes that I did.

The recipient is happy and does not mind these things, instead she said, the dark border is impressive.
Loving it 🙂
See you all with another FO soon.

Cheers,
Sangheetha.
