Well here is an update on this doily, I should have put this on last week as below is where I am now. I started the long chains in white and this is rounds 6 and 7, I don't like the long chains, I have only roughly blocked this hoping when I get more rounds on it will straighten out a bit more.
Here is the latest round in purple round eight. I was unable to sew in the ends yesterday as the light was very bad. I really don't know if I am going to like this doily or not, time will tell, its not my usual colouring, sometimes you have to try something different. again this was only roughly blocked, I have been doing Carolyn's method of damping the doily and rolling it out with the rolling pin, it works saves using the iron too.
What do you think?
