I am really liking black doilies...

Good Morning.. I just finished this one up..it is from Year of Doilies book 2....



This was a little hard to block.  I looked at the pic really good in the book and the stitches appeared to be loose and not pulled tight..I needed to do that because it wasn't blocking really well when I tried to smooth everything out..it went all weird shaped..  I like the black doilies..I like the way they look..so extreme..maybe it is just because we don't see so many of them..and most of us started crocheting when the norm was white or ecru...

I also want to remind those of you who use DMC Cebelia  that DMC has raised their prices...I am holding off raising mine until  the first of September when I put in my next order.  It is then that I will have to pay the price increase.  I started selling this thread because I couldn't find it in colors in any of the stores around here.  It was at this time I decided that wouldn't try to make a profit, but to just keep in the hands of those who like me love a good quality thread.  So you have about a week until I have to raise my price...I will even do a mix and match of colors ...as long as you get 5 balls I will send it to you at the price of a box..which is $20.00 + postage until September 1st...you can get in touch with me through Etsy..facebook(byhooks4u) or email

I also want to do a shout out to those living in the west that are having to deal with wildfires, smoke, and all that goes with having to be aware and ready to leave...I pray that you are safe, your families are safe, and that you and your families are able to walk away untouched...

I like the black also, but it is hard on the eyes while crocheting. Beautiful!

Oh, I love the black doilies! I rarely use it, though, because it's too hard on my eyes.
