1918 Doily Finished, Crochet-Along To Start Soon

I finished this doily last night. Have to say that it was a fun piece to work. It measures 13 inches (larger then the pattern said as I used a larger hook and thread).


Soon I'll be starting a crochet-a-long for this pattern. I will post the link for the pattern as well as list the instructions (as per my interpretation). All the instructions will be on the same post so that at the end its all together.
I really lke the edging to this.

Now, to decide on a color, although I think white would be stunning ... decisions, decisions ...


If anyone else is going to do this I would love to know.

    Is this creme or white yarn??

    A light pink would be beautiful but I can't see it in any color but creme or white hehe but if you do a color I would be thrilled to see because it will be beautiful with any color !!

  13. I love the doily and I hope I can get a few things done so I can participate in the crochet along. I haven't made a doily in so long and I think this would so much fun to do as a crochet along. Thanks for offering this =)

  14. Count me in Glor! I always love a fun crochet along, and having just finished one, this one is perfect timing!! I think I will be using a size 10 thread and larger hook as well though. My eyes are not what they used to be! ~tina
