Stor Lysedug Off Needles

Finally got the Stor Lysedug doily off the needles last night. Definitely took a while to bind off the more than 1,000 stitches (picot bind off.) Recall I knit it oversized using #9 US circs.

The color of the yarn is actually paler than what shows in the photo.

Now the piece will sit until I have time to block it. Right now, it measures 39" across. I know it'll be much bigger after I block it but don't know how much bigger. I've never really blocked a knitted piece before.

So now onto my other works in progress.

Two More Cloths

I know, I know. My little cloths don't begin to compare to the elaborate sweaters and other items you gentlemen create. I've tried a sweater and got frustrated. I get bored with a scarf before I'm halfway through. So, these are a great outlet for my knitting frustration until I'm ready to tackle that sweater or pair of socks. Thanks for bearing with me!
