 I finally figured how to do the rest of the rows on the doily I posted in my previous post. Some helpful ladies, at the group the  CAL was on , tried to help but  I could not wrap my head around it. So I put it aside and decided to work on something else, to take a break.
 I had a lone ball of Anchor Knitting Cotton lying around and decided to stash bust. Not that I have a stash to speak of right now.

The edge
The pattern is from a Japanese Chart , no idea where I got it from. I was looking for a  quick project and this one fit the bill. Took me an afternoon to finish. When I finished , I realised that it had no border! So I gave it one.
Here's a better view of the Edging. Its really simple and I will write it up soon.
What do you think?

  6. Your doily looks pretty!! If you can take a snap from the front, then the entire design will be visible more. Glad to know that your kids and family are having a good time in India. Hope your belongings reach you soon. Take care and don't take stress.

  8. Such a beautiful talent you have, have you considered putting a shop on Etsy or do you already have one? I am certain your boys will find love and joy wherever life takes them if they share your optimism and passion with them. Happy to hear they are transitioning well. I have a dear friend going to India for a year. She is leaving in a month, I will miss her but happy for the internet.. makes distance so much shorter.

  9. Hi Pearlin, the doily is lovely. Especially love the oval shape of it and the color. A very good friend here moved back to India, which has never really been home to her, but with aging moms and both fathers already gone, she and her husband felt it was the time to return to their roots and take care of things there. They were here in Kuwait growing up, then in New Zealand together for years, then came back to Kuwait for about 4 years. She mentions how it is quite an adjustment but they are learning to navigate the system. Her things were held up in customs too but finally got through. Wishing you all the best! Tammy
