~ granny doily ~

I finished this granny doily just a little bit ago.  I got the pattern from here - scroll down a little and click on 'knitting diagram'.  I love this doily - it's so easy to crochet.  I only had one 50 gram skein of Saucy Sport cotton, so I crocheted till the 13th round and then used 1 strand white knit-cro-sheen and 1 strand of rose Cebelia size 10 held together for the last round.  I used a size 'E' crochet hook.  I also sewed on 3 buttons to the edge - I have to do something with these buttons - I have a ton of them.  :)

  3. I was immediately drawn to this doily. It is great! I may not be doing something correctly, but is there a way to get that website in English?

  4. Thank you very much ladies. :)

    Sherri - just click on the 'translate' button in your Google toolbar. It won't translate all the writing on the Japanese site though - just some of it.

  9. Debi, I think the buttons around the doily is a fabulous idea. Are you going to go completely around or just do the 3 for a bit of an accent? How much fun would this idea be for a little girl's bedroom or for a gift! Love it!

  10. Thank you all for your nice compliments. :)

    Susanne - I thought of putting buttons all around but then decided not to. I may go back later and add more. :)
