I picked up the March issue of Decorative Crochet just to flip through it. (I flip through all of the crochet magazines at the store, don’t you?) Just flipping through. Really. When I saw the Marine Merry-Go-Round, a dolphin-themed filet doily, I was helpless. My mom loves dolphins, so I’ll be making it as a gift for her.
I ordered some CÃƒÂ©bÃƒÂ©lia No. 20 in Horizon Blue. I’m pretty excited because this will be my first doily, my first filet, and the first time I’ve worked with the size 20 thread.
This was also my first order from Knitting Warehouse. I placed it on Sunday and it arrived Friday, shipped from MI to NC. I also got a ball of gold metallic Knit-Cro-Sheen to do some refurbishing work on something from my husband’s great grandmother, which I’ll show when I’m done.
