FINISHED PROJECT: Pineapple Doily

I've gone doily crazy! After I finished my heart doily, it made me totally itchy to bust out all the tiny hooks and do more more more. The first doily I ever made was last summer - and it was part of one of my first posts!


Crochet Doily


I found the pattern on Ravelry, as always - you can see it here: Petite Pineapple Doily. Clearly, mine didn't turn out as petite or quarter-sized as the picture, but I might have used a way bigger size thread than the pattern called for. I was given a huge garbage bag full of crochet thread from my aunt and most of them had no labels on them any more.


Tiny Crochet Hooks


I got to use my tiny little hook case! My mom got this for me from Hobby Lobby last year. I'm terrified to use those tiny little hooks! For the project, I used a trust #6. Not too tiny.


Crochet Doily and Candle


See how NOT quarter-sized this is? That's ok - I wanted it this big. I do have to block it still, buuuut I hate blocking. I wish there was a place I could just send it and pay $5 for them to block it perfectly for me.
