knitted doilies
I found one of these doilies by accident and then went to their web site.

They are lovely. My questions are:
1. What size needle would you use? Lace or Regular needle?
2. What kind of yarn?
Since I crochet as well, my crochet buddies and my knitting friends at the LYS regular meeting night said size 10 crochet thread. The pictures look like yarn was used. There are some really nice crochet thread out there which would be like lace weight yarn. But it doesn't tell you how much or what to use. I am in a quandary as the favorite one of mine is the one they term as peacock feathers. It isn't the one I found but I think I will try and make a couple but what to use?????
