Liz Snella's Doily finished

I still haven't blocked my Egeblad Doily, but that's next... hopefully tonight.

I did, however, manage to get the Liz Snella's Heirloom Doily finished AND blocked last night! I started it Tuesday and finished it Wednesday, so it was a good fast knit. If I did it again I'd eliminate some of the plain rounds in between the first group of petals and the second, but I kind of doubt I'll make it again.

I could have sworn that I took a picture of this doily before I blocked it, but I can't find it on my computer so I guess I didn't.

The stats on this one:
Pattern: Liz Snella's Heirloom Doily from
Yarn: Baroque cotton, size 10
Needles: KnitPicks Clasic Circulars, size 3 (US)
Finished size: 14½"
Time to complete: 1 day (roughly--Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon)

We've also had some daffodils and iris pop up, but I'll have to post pics later. I had the second of five crowns done today and I'm going to go take a pain pill.

Beautiful doily! I'm sorry to hear you have to have all that dental work done. It sounds painful! I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing project you can cozy up with.

Oh, my, it is exquisite!
I just bought some of that yarn today to knit a doily. Haven't decided which one yet.
I wish I was there to enjoy your iris'. They are one of three (pansies and african violets, too) of my favorites.
Wishing you well.
