Finally, A New Doily

I have not knit any doilies for a while, so it was time to knit one that I have been thinking about for some time.

The details:
  • Pattern: Adonienieroschen (I have no idea what this means) from Old World Treasures by Gloria Penning. Perhaps this is a Herbert Niebling design? The ribbing in the center flower gives this doily a lot of great texture.
  • Thread: Cebelia size 30
  • Needles: 2mm (US0)
  • Finished size: approximately 16 inches diameter

Fair Time!

One of the pleasures of the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup, Washington, is seeing the beautiful needlework. And taking home a few ribbons. I had a good year.

First place and Best in Category in the Lace section for my spiral doily.

First place for another doily, also in the Lace category.

In the Knitting category, I have second place for a scarf.

Third place for a shawl.

And honorable mention for a hat.
