Well begun is half done… The saying really holds true! I have been on the pretty Doily Tat-along from how long? Three months, is it? And the project was going no where for the simple reason that it had been a bad start. I mentioned this to my sister a few days ago and she remarked that it must be that the start had been bad. ‘May be true, may be not’, I had remarked.
After I ran out of thread on the previous doily, I decided to start the doily again… Sis was right. Well begun is really half done. I started again, in Size 5 Crochet cotton. (Yes, the doily is BIG).
I have not only completed fourth round… I am on the second round of chains on round five. The start was so good that I managed to finish three rounds in just one day! Round four took a little longer because I got side tracked when Dane fell ill. It tok me two days to complete round four and an hour to finish the first round of chains on round five. I have finished half of the second round of chains on round five. Dane fell down while trying to get off the bed this afternoon and although, he didn’t hurt himself (just a little bump), I still feel guilty that my eyes aren’t on him all the time. We have a house full of people keeping an eye on him and even that is not enough. Dane is Hyper-dooper- active ( That is a new word!)
