    Doys from PK's victorian spiral doilies

    Absolutely georgeous!!
  2. Well here it is; my "Ultra Beauty" from "Ultimate Doilies". Made this one in two colors. Pale green and cream. I'm a bit ashamed to say I haven't gotten around to block it yet. And none of you will notice the threads hanging here ande there.....will you??? :blush Have a nice day everybody!
  3. Made this one while visiting my youngest daughter last weekend. It's a pattern from Garnstudio, you can find it here:http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=38〈=en I made a few changes and crocheted it in a cotton-blend yarn; Svale from Dale of Norway. In a pale lilac color, not blue as it seems like in the picture. Quite pleased with how it turned out, and I guess it will look even better when I get it blocked.

    Any PK lovers here? (doily)

    Hello Lori. Visited your gallery, and boy am I impressed by your work! The Svanhild doily is absolutely gorgeous. I haven't tried making spirals yet, but it sure looks awsome. Guess that means I have a legitim excuse to buy one more of PK's books.

    Looking for a Summer Shawl pattern

    I have just finished this one from Garnstudio. I used "Svale", a cotton yarn from Dale of Norway and ajusted the pattern slightly. Turned out nice, and the pattern is very easy. Here's the link to the pattern: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=38〈=en

    Yet another Norwegian

    Hello everybody! I`m a norwegian woman who loves to knit and crochet. I occationly pick up an embroidery needle, but it doesn`t last long before I`m back with my yarn and hook again. I was taught how to crochet by my aunt at the age of six, but it wasn`t until I was well grown up that my hook got really busy. And now I`m totally addicted to knitting and crocheting. Not a day goes by without me working my needles and hooks. I`m a mother of 2 girls, stepmother to one girl, and grandmother of two beautiful 5 year old girls. Love from mormor

    Thank you all very much for all those nice words. It has inspired me to start crocheting another PK-doily. It's the "Ultra Beauty" from Ultimate Doilies. Quite tricky this one.....because it has braids. But I think I'm done with the most difficult part now. And yes; I will brag (post a pic) when it's completed.

    Do you have a name or a number for those leaflets? I`d love to make an afghan in textured stitches.

    Babysteps towards a tablecloth

    Any further progess in this tablecloth?? Btw: I liked the second-to-last-posted arrangement best. Tried to leave a comment in your blog, but wasn`t allowed to unless I registered...

    Thanx a lot for the nice words girls. I`ve been doing a lot of reading in here, and this seems like a good place to stay. No hush words, just helping and cheering people. (Please keep in mind that English is not my native language. I know I do some major mistakes in my writing)
