Oh, lacy things.

(Deep, deep, contented sigh.)

I finally finished tatting this lacy Clover Doily by Jon.

This doily is made up of 3 individual motifs but once tatted together ~ it forms a lacy mosaic that seems so intricate, but is actually oh, so simple.

My obsession with lace has now seeped into socks & knitting.

I just started this Medallion Lace Sock by Andrea Fox.

And this is what I have noticed...

...I am still completely bowled over that socks are magically appearing from my needles.  I stare down at the movement and think ~ is this really me doing this?

Because it's so therapeutic.

So rhythmic.

So soothing.

And so unbelievably beautiful.

How beautiful that tatting is and the knitting too.

That doily is something- gorgeous!

The socks are great too but I have a passion for tatting.

I feel exactly the same when I tat something of substance- wow, I'm really responsible for that?

The doily is just breathtaking. I just love tatted doilies and I'm still trying to learn how to do it.

Jeanne said...

Wow, wow, WOW! Absolutely gorgeous and I mean both the doily and the socks. You are very talented, Dawn and I so enjoy seeing what you have been working on. I'm thrilled for you that your projects have come together and you are feeling success again. Amazing work. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

Superb doily. I wanted to do this in colour and bought green, red and orange threads. But haven't gotten time to start it yet. But the white colour looks awesome.

I think most of us are not surprised at the beauties coming off your needles.
Love those socks!!!

The tatting is awesome! So very pretty.

Love the sock and the yarn....what I always liked about making a sock was the heal. The directions made no sense, but in the end it became a heal! :)

Just found your lovely blog via Crochet By The Sea. Looking forward to watching your progress on all your projects. :)

Blessings always
