With all this excitement finding a 1916 Needlecraft magazine with patterns for thread crochet, I had to take out my early experiments with threads and doilies, which I had also re-discovered when looking for something else.
I didn’t block them then, because I didn’t know how. And as I look at them closely now, I see several mistakes here and there. My tension was also uneven. Hopefully I’ll do better this time.
Oblong doily – I was crocheting this during a vacation trip.
Blue doily – I tried to finish this before I gave birth to my second son. I didn’t, and finished it during one of those late-night feedings.
