Return of the neglected doily

I haven't been crocheting very much this past week or so, though I have another project planned that will probably push this one out of the way again. Poor little doily. But a lady I know is having a baby in a few months, and I want to make a pair of booties. I have the yarn, but the pattern I had picked turned out to be a dud. In the meantime, I am back in the land of thread.

You can see what I've been reading there also, I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. A friend sent it to me for my birthday and it is absolutely enchanting. I think I could just read it over and over again.

And it is all photographed on the piano because... piano.


Linking today with Ginny's yarn along.

    Have you tried this pattern here for baby booties? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/babys-booties-knit I have knitted a few of these as gifts by now and even though the first one was a bit tricky this is a very good and lovely pattern, I think.

    1. I looked at the pictures and they are absolutely adorable! But I can't knit. (Insert heartfelt sigh here.) I shall remember it though, for that glorious day when I become craft-bilingual. And thanks so much, I really appreciate it.

  2. I envy your crocheting with thread. I have tried it several times and just don't like it. I inherited a bunch of unmarked thread balls and every so often I attempt a doily. I have made a few successes. I love your yellow doily.
