FO: “Elysium”

According to my Ravelry project page, this doily came off the hook in October, but I didn’t block it until the latter half of February.  High time it gets its moment on the blog!

Pattern: “Elysium”, by Grace Fearon

This is a particularly lacy doily with something of the look of frost or a snowflake. 

Thread: DMC Baroque Crochet Cotton (size 10), in “White”

This thread has been in my stash for a while.  From what I remember, it’s a nice thread, but it’s not available in many colors, and working with plain white after the exciting variegation of Alize Miss Batik was, well, a little boring.

Still, the resultant doily is nice, and one good thing about plain white thread is that it can go just about anywhere without risk of clashing with a color scheme. 


I’m Michael (a female Michael, to remove any doubt).  I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast with my husband, Donald, and our crazy American Eskimo Dogs. 

I love to fill my spare time with various crafts and other hobbies, and this blog is where I share photos, record my progress, and ramble endlessly.
