Doily-Along !!!

…. Last Thursday, KATE gave a Doily-Along Announcement ….

…. mmmm …. what to do ??? I was just stating to unpack all my boxes …. where is the yarn ? …. where are all my hooks ? …. and other thoughts like that …. especially this one : are you nuts ? ….
…. well, I've never been in a CAL before and Kate is a dear bloggy friend, so I decided to enter in !!!!

No 1,65 mm hook for me, no thread …. I prefer to use my 100% acrylic yarn 8 ply ( MODA Vera by Marvel) in bright colours …. with a 3,5mm hook …. even if the yarn calls for a 4mm hook …. how brave am I ??? ;oD

So this morning, just after reading the Doily-Along Part 1 posted by Kate, I started to crochet my first motif …

Honestly, I'm not a great fan of doilies ( even mandalas, but I crocheted one for Yarndale anyway !!!!), but I like new challenges and I'm always eager to learn something new in crochet …. and when the right colours combo is at your hands, why not ?

So, it was easy to complete the first 3 rounds ….

…. the 4th round ….

…. and the 5th round, that is the last round of the motif chosen by Kate ….

So, I confronted my work with the one made by Kate ….

…. and I have to admit that it was fun !!!!

Do you wanna join, too ??? ;oD

  10. Thanks for sharing!! I love the colors you chose, and I love that it will certainly be an "Ale" doily!!

    Kate :}

  11. Certo che sei brava a trovare il tempo di crochettare!Io i centrini mi diverto a farli,ma poi non amo il loro uso convenzionale e quindi cerco sempre di inventarmi un modo per usarli...Un'altra cosa che mi diverto a fare è lavorarli come stai facendo tu con uncinetto e lana grossetti ,rispetto al modello originario...Mi piace un sacco vedere come vengono più grandi!Spero che gli scatoloni da disfare stiano diminuendo!Buon fine settimana!

  12. It's looking great !! Lovely colors :) I also wanted to join but then right now I am into so many things.

  13. So the colours!!
    Happy weekend, Ale.
