I posted these doilies on my other blog before, which by the way I am thinking to discontinue.
Making a doily again for the first time after so many years, was kinda bit hard, it’s like doing it the first time again.
I learned to read crochet diagram from my late mom and made my first doily when I was in grade school.
So when I started crocheting again, I have to rely on my stock knowledge which surprisingly was well enough for me to understand the meaning of each abbreviations like ch, sl st, sc, dc, tc and other stitches. But what was new to me was that it's entirely different if you're following a pattern instead of a diagram. So as I do my pineapple doily, I have to learn the meaning of each symbols like asterisks, bracket and parenthesis.
First on the menu is the first doily I made after so long ago, it's a from DMC, pineapple doily used Traditions thread. I did a lot of frogging before I finish it.
Second is a filet crochet along from Hass Design, I enjoy doing the filet hence the third project. It's from DMC leaflet I got when I was buying some yarns and spotted them on the counter. I am so happy how it turns out, and will make a another one soon :)
I’ll just have to prioritize what crochet project I want to accomplish this year, and well with time permits, as I am a mother of two handful kids ages 8 and 3, who knows what will I finish come year end. :)
