FO: “Icarus”

Another doily!

“Icarus”, pattern designed by Grace Fearon.

Crocheted in Artiste Mercerized Egyptian Cotton #10, “Antique”.  It’s a chameleon of a color.  In some lights, it’s distinctly pinkish/mauve, but in others, it sees more like a dark ecru or light tan. 

I really enjoyed crocheting this one!  I love the starry motif in the center of the doily, and I’m also a fan of the flowers in the border– and the thick, “rope” frame around each flower. 


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.
