On A Doily Roll!

This pattern had me stumped - twice!  This is third time lucky!  
Both tries previously - mistake in foundation row!!!! Darn!

With two more rows to go!  Do not have enough thread to make all three, so might make another piece of this size.

This is So Addictive!

The maroon color yarn is from Arlene's stash.  She was so kind to let me get the rest of this yarn off her after she completed her piece of this scarf!! 
Do You Enjoy The Maroon & Grey Color Combo?

Have a few other colors in my stash spearheaded for this pattern!

A Finished Project or Rather Two

Happy to update that Ripples had survived the wash in the machine and hang out to dry and finally DH is using it!

Another view of ripples
Are you bored yet?
Thank goodness, something else in picture!
Yahoo! A finished project!
All of 2.5 skeins, I suddenly remembered that I am not tall so 4 skeins was not necessary!
See? Those Giant Wire Hangers From 100Yen Sure Came In Handy!
