Nifty Fifty

My journey to size 100 thread continued with two doilies made with Flora size 50 on 2.00mm needles. This was my first venture to size 50.

The one below, which I knit first, is "Helen" from "Old World Treasures" by Gloria Penning. It has 73 rounds and finished at approximately 11 inches in diameter.



The second one is design #7 from Lavori Artistici #11. This one, at 63 rounds, is about 10 inches in diameter.



Getting started on size 50 was a bit of a challenge, but once I got going, it was just like knitting with larger thread.

Next: size 70-ish.

They are both beautiful! I have no doubt that you will conquer 100-size thread before too long ...

Those are just lovely! Size 50 is scary, nevermind size 100.
