I started this doily last Friday. It went really quickly until I got to the last few rounds. When I started making the last two rounds of ruffles, work slowed to a crawl. I worked on the last round of edging most of the afternoon and I am only half way around it! It is for a set I am calling "Ripples, Ruffles and Roses." At this rate, this may be the only ruffled doily in the set. The hook has actually rubbed a blister on my finger, and I did not think that was possible at this point. I have had callouses on my fingers from the thread and hook since I was 18 (oh so long ago!)
Anyway, I really do love this doily, it reminds me of a tutu, so girly and pretty in pink. I just hope it is worth the pain!
