My Little little treasure

This is my first attempt doing knitted doily. I have made many many crocheted doilies I even have done a tablecloth and put their pictures in my crochet blog. . This little one is really precious to me for two reasons; first , it is my first knitted work with thread , second because it is knitted doily. I always love my first attempt doing something , and look at it as something really precious whatever I will do later.

I have made this doily using a thread size 10 and double pointed needle size 2mm. Its measurement is 8 inches across -lovely , cute, and so small. LOL.

I believe that we don't know ourselves well until we face something, someone, or specific situation. I would never think that I will love doing knitting or crochet with thread and small size needles and hooks, but when I have worked with Them I really loved this so much, and found it really amazing, easy, and fun more than I thought.


  1. Lily, you are right - we sometimes surprise ourselves when we stretch beyond ourselves. I never thought I would be a knitter and now it's so much a part of my life, I can't imagine not having it as an outlet. Your doily is beautiful! Congratulations!
