    Fractal Doily

    Thanks for the responses. My problem is indeed "cupping". The part of the instructions about increasing randomly refer to the "vane" sections of the pattern and not the center circle where I'm having the problem. This problem seems to be obvious if the rounds are worked evenly but I can't find anyone experiencing the same issue!!! I've searched on line!!! Oh well, I guess I'll have to wing it.

    Fractal Doily

    I've finally begun the fractal doily http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fractal-2 and the center circle curls because there is no increase on rows 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 10. My quandary is that if I increase on these rows I will throw off the final size of the circle and it won't work out when I begin the "vanes". Has anyone else experienced this problem?????

    Two size 30 thread?

    Thanks so much for your input. I wanted to make a "painted" fractal doily and use the size threads that I already have. I've decided to use sewing thread, holding 3 strands together.

    Two size 30 thread?

    I've done an internet search and can't seem to find an answer. Would anyone know if two size 30 threads would equal a size 10 thread? Thanks in advance.

    Lizbeth Thread Holder

    Has anyone used the Lizbeth thread holder? I'm really looking for a way to keep the thread from twisting when it feeds off the ball. I have a holder that the ball sort of dangles off of a hook, but it always tangles on the hook. Maybe I need to enlist DH to make something with a dowel....... Thanks in advance.
