This is, in fact, a quick and relaxing knit. I’ve always loved a doily which isn’t surprising really seeing I’ve been born into the wrong era. Pin. Stretch. Pin again. Stretch again. Mommes Lysedug is blocking. More photos later.
I only had text version of the pattern. It is accurate and easy to follow. Only modification incorporated was the picot bind-off (in Size 7 needles.) Using smaller needles keeps the picot from being too frilly.
The 110-round doily upsizes quite successfully and perfectly–giving me a purty shawl or lap blanket over 5 feet in diameter. It drapes down to elbow and may be pinned in the front so it stays on without effort–perfect for many summer outings.
Now back to finishing up border for the community afghan…it’s coming along nicely.
Hopefully, you’ll be able to knit during more happy times than not. Like many knitters have discovered, this cherished hobby becomes more than just a pastime during more difficult times in our lives. Knitting may or may not be the new yoga as it’s been said, but, it’s a gift that you may keep with you forever.
