Waves,
I was playing around with the pattern for the waves doily and came up with some numbers that may be of interest to a few people. This doily was made from size 80 thread and measures 8 inches across. It consists of the following elements 280 joins, 2,104 matching picots and finally 10,040 double stitches. No wonder these things take so long to make.

So how many 50 yards skeins did this take?

Wow Clyde! you really counted all the double-stitches?

Thank you for leaving a comment about my doily. It was after you posted the picture of your Waves that I decided I must finish my doily.

That's a lot of counting. I hope it will make people realize how much "love" goes into these projects!

I'm not a math person, but I'm really impressed by these numbers!

Well, you already know that I just love WAVE. It looks like the name - a lot of movement. And the Tigereye worked up beautifully. I love my HDT from Marilee. I can hardly wait to get the pattern for this one - And the new Sunlite - looks like its name, too! Just beautiful, dedicated work. I don't think I'd count - might intimidate me! LOL Very interesting to know though - that is a lot of counting!
