Doily and Slabs


I just finished my knit doily. I think it came out pretty good. I didn't like sewing on the border but it wasn't that bad. This picture shows the doily all blocked.

This is the doily before I blocked it. I had already sewn the border on. It reminded me of a beret!

I washed the doily and then pinned it on my board. This board had a great 12 inch circle already printed on it. It was so easy to pin the doily to the proper size. I laid a piece of saran wrap below the doily so my board wouldn't get soaked. I took advantage of the weather and let it dry outside. So easy!!

Turning my attention to my lovely slabs! I have some nice fabric to sash and border the blocks. This will be such a great table runner!

    1. Thanks, Julierose! I think crocheted doilies are more common. I like knitting so I try to find patterns. They're very similar to knitting lace. Enjoy the heat!!

  3. Such a pretty doily. I can't imagine how hard it is to knit one. Is there a chart you have to follow?
    I like the colors you chose for your table runner.

    1. Thank you, Em! This one didn't have a chart but some doilies do have them. I've always loved pink and green together. I should garden but I kill everything!!

    1. Thanks, Nancy! So glad you found my blog! I love doilies but they're not as easy to find anymore. They're quick to make. The table runner is from a block swap. Quilting fun!!
