The Big Doily

I finished another replacement doily made from the Knitpicks great Curio thread. For a large project like this one, the thread really shines, working up well and frustration-free. It has a nice finish making it slide nicely over the steel hook unlike many of the other crochet cottons I have used. 

One thing I did not expect was that this project would be so much larger than the one I was replacing, even though I used the same pattern and hook size. Actually, I was thrilled that it covers such a generous space and that the lacework is much more visible.

 Here's a picture of them side by side.
