Okay, so I got new-to-me furniture on Wednesday. Totally unexpected find, and a good friend of Knitivity/Knitterman helped me pay for it. Couch, loveseat and 2 lamps for $135. Not bad. It’s used, but I know both of the previous families who had it, and if I’d sit on it at their house, I’d sit on it in mine, right? The coffee table and matching side table were given me by my daughter a few years ago.
And this, of course, means re-discovering things I’d long ago forgotten, including this doily that I crocheted in 1989, my first ever crochet-thread doily.
Heck, since I actually have sitting space for company, and a cleared coffee table, I figured I should wash this (it was dirty gray and sort of funky), so now it’s all pretty and white and clean again. I didn’t formally block it — doing so would probably stretch it another inch or two across. I’m not going to do that.
What I AM going to try, however, is to copy it. that will require ‘reading’ the stitches, but that won’t be too difficult.
The more difficult part will be deciding whether to do it as a shawl, with fingering weight yarn, or a circular afghan with worsted weight.
