Doilies and Roses.. Well, white chocolate roses...

And hearts. I made some more, with white chocolate chips this time. They turned out fine. (Now I know that I'll have to compare prices....) ;)
This is the doily I am working on for doily of the month club. I am going to rip it out it's making me so mad. See how it is curling up around the edge? And in the center it's curling up, too. I must be doing something wrong. I've been counting stitches at the end of every blasted round, though. I don't know. Maybe it will just have to be blocked really well. I'm on row 31, and there are 60 rounds to this doily. I can't wait until it's finished. I need to stop working on fourteen things at once and finish something! Actually, I did finish something, but it's for my secret pal and I can't post it here until I send it to her/she gets it. And, I haven't even sent it out yet. So... no picture for that. I got an Adagio Tea Gift Certificate from my secret pal! Thank you secret pal! I ordered 'Berry Blast'. I am drinking a lot more tea than I used to. It helps me relax. Well I'm off to see what else I can crochet! Have a Great Day everyone!

Maybe this will help with the doily, Tina: Dampen it with water and flatten it to see if it will behave accordingly. I do that with most of my thread work. (Actually, I dont block my doilies I just dampen, shape with my fingers and leave to dry on the bedsheet) If it still doesnt look right, there must be something wrong with the pattern.

Thanks, Mimi. I have made a gazillion doilies in my life, I'm thinking it's the pattern. I was going to frog it, but I've put so much time into it I don't want to do that. :( Hopefully it will block and be fine...
