Knitted Lace Doily
My husband came home from shopping on Christmas Eve with three bunches of flowers, which led to a flower arranging session, and then a rummage for something to stand the jugs on. I came across this beautiful little knitted lace doily.
Often people glance at knitted lace and assume it is crochet. I have seen at least one mislabelled item in a museum.
The only lace knitting I have done was in cream coloured double knitting wool for a cot blanket. I can't imagine ever settling down and working on tiny doilies - I'm content to admire the work that some patient and skilled lady did many years ago.
