Wow, is that 100% silk? It looks like lovely yarn and I was swooning over some of the other colors that seller had. I think if you start knitting the center, you'll get an idea of how the silk is going to handle the pattern.

If you try different gauges, will you take photos to share? I'm really intrigued now.

I just started row 100 of the extension. Whew! There are a lot of stitches in each round. These doilies are deceiving. The beginning goes so fast, and then when you get to the long rounds, ! I think this is why I never did one in thin yarn. All those stitches for a doily?

As for the extension pattern, all I can say is

Wow that was fast. 36 rows to go can't wait to see the completed egeblad with extension. would also like to see progress photo if poss.

Mary is very talented to have been able to do this.

I haven't really started yet just playing around with yarn and needle size to see what I like.

Ok, it's blocked. I have it drying right now, but I took a ton of pictures of the entire blocking process and posted it on my blog. http://minou14.livejournal.com/9873.html

It came out at exactly 48" using the original pattern. I am in LOVE!

Minou what a great job you did. I will save your blog page and use it for reference in the future. Your egeblad is beautiful. Such a great idea of using the two plastic totes inside each other. will have to see if I can find something similar over here.

I think I will have one or another on the needles for a long time to come. I would not really like to make them as doilies but I love them as blankets.

Wow! I may have to invest in more pins.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow, Minou, your Egeblad came out beautiful! Thank you for
going over your blocking procedure because I'm still very much a
novice when it comes to lace and that really helped alot! I think
I can do this

I'm in the middle of my test knit with lace weight yarn and like
the pattern so far. My doily is going to be black because that is
what I had in my stash so might look a bit odd but oh well!
