SUNLITE

This is number 2 in the series of doilies that I am designing. I am happy with how it turned out except the outer rings are woven picots and they do not work to well with the fine thread. I think the woven picots will turn out nicer with a thicker thread. The doily is 6 inches across and is made of Marilee's (Yarnplayer) Tiger Eye Hand Dyed Thread size 80 and I used about 35 yards of thread.

Very pretty! I've never heard of woven picots before. Thanks for introducing me to something new!

This is lovely!. What a neat idea of yours to do the woven picots. I think you are right about using a thicker thread to make the picots stand out better.

That's so lovely! The thread is perfect for the doily. May be is the woven picots were a little bigger will stand better with the fine thread. Will look more lacey. But anyway is very pretty.

I haven't been able to design a lot of doilies, so hat off to you!
