Baroque Doily


If it aint baroque… dont fix it. ha ha

I made this really awesome doily for my last partner in Secret Crochet Pals. I am SO pleased and impressed with it! It is made with 8 triangle motifs made out of size 10 thread and a size 6 steel hook. Oh, and blocked to hell and back to get that sharp triangly shape. The motifs came from a really awesome Japanese motif book a friend Ruth gave me. I’d share the title, but, well, I cant read it. Thankfully, the book graphs all their motifs.

I love this doily!



Made this for my Secret Crochet Pal last round, from 99 Little Doilies. It worked up super quick, as all the little doilies in that book do, but did turn out teenier than the stated gauge. So, I added a few more rows so it looked more doily-like than bookmark-like. Still, cute!


Blue Shawl for my SCP

Made this neato shawl for my pal on Secret Crochet Pals. I really love this blue yarn! I got it as a gift from a friend; her Mom had tons and tons of stuff she used for machine knitting, and this came from that.

My base chain was several inches longer than my arm span, and I did shell, sk 2, sc, sk 2 shell for the body. I edged it with 2 rows of sc, then a row of shells. I am pleased with how it turned out.


Secret Pal Stuff

sent off my first puffy for this go-around of Secret Crochet Pals. my pal knows who I am, so I’m posting these pics as I’m pretty durned proud of how these projects turned out.

First, the bookmark

i made this using one of my favorite motifs, which I’ve used with thread, yarn, embroidery floss, ribbon… you name it. it’s a great motif for any project; join them for scarves, ponchos, shawls, skirts, blankets, or use them on their own as a decorative piece.


the pattern is as follows:

ch 6, form ring
sc, ch3, sc 12 times, 12 loops made
sc. ch3, sc 12 times, 12 loops made
sc, ch6, sc, ch3 12 times, 12 loops made, 6 large 6 small
sc in ch3 loop, 6 dc ch2 6 dc in ch 6 loop around, 6 petals made

if you join the motifs, simply interlock the motifs at the ch 2 space between the dc stitches.

The Hook Holder

omg, I am sooo impressed with myself here! I love this thing and plan to make one myself. I used a steel hook size 00 and size 10 thread.
