Wacky Butterfly Doily-thing
Awhile back, my mom commented that she missed the crocheted doilies and tablecloths that her grandmother made. That inspired me to try my hand at some vintage patterns.

I'm not really sure if I like it or not; I'm admittedly disappointed by the color of the butterflies. The stores around me are really lacking in crochet thread colors.

Anyhoo, this is a 1950ish pattern, worked in size 10 thread with a #7 hook. There's a full frontal action shot on my blog, if anybody is inclined to giggle at me over there. Anyhoo, thanks for looking!

I think it's sweet!

What color were you wanting for the butterflies? I've seen some DMC Senso at Hobby Lobby in some nice colors, but it that a heavier thread that what the pattern calls for?
