the other doily

In hooky news, the other doily of the doily duo is all blocked and done.yarn and all 006
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, then you ‘d be able to recognise this one. Yup, I ‘ve made it before.  I gave that to my aunt , who I always say is my other mother. She has it framed in  her home in the U.S.  I havn’t seen how it looks though.
This time I decided to do a bead  edge. The green thread is DMC Perle’ Cotton 8. The pattern is from the same book Beautiful Crochet Lace Doily and Table Center.

I was going for the lilies in a pond look.Do you think the doily gives that impression?

to this

Does anyone else find untangling tangled yarns therapeutic ?am I  the only nutty  knotty one or  do I have a knotty soul sista out there?

  1. I thought I saw a doily like that before. This rendition is just as pretty! Sounds like a fun day out with A. Boys and their gadget fancy, hehe... they never grow up right (yes husband, I'm looking at you!) ;)

  2. That doily is AMAZING!!! I cannot stop admiring it.
    And your newly organised and untangled cotton looks lush

  3. Your doily is gorgeous!
    I like to untangle yarn too. It feels nice to accomplish something.

  4. I find untangling yarns somewhat nice depends on what kind of mood I am in. Sometimes it can take a bad mood and make it better. And then again sometimes it can take a bad mood and make it worse.

  5. Aww that doily is really a work of art!
    And um. No. I hate untangling yarn. I wish I could magically transform my piles of yarn monsters into neat little skeins!! Wanna come over? ;)

  6. That doily is incredible and totally gives that illusion! LOVE IT!

  7. Wow this looks awesome. *stares at the pretty*

  8. This is so pretty and I am impressed at your untangling! I am a keen untangler myself - although these days I chuck the whole lot to Mr Myrtle because I am so short of precious time!

  9. Sounds like fun at the mall! I can't believe you managed to untangle all that cotton. I do NOT think I'd find that therapeutic AT ALL. But the doily looks fantastic!

  10. Very pretty doily...I have only made one...and yes I can see lilies on a pond

  11. Lilies on Pond Doily is very gorgeous!I dont find untangling yarn very theraputic, but once in a while I reorganise evrything.

  12. Wow, your doily is beautiful, so delicate! Your son is right about the gadgets, they are fun to go and play with.
