When your lace is ﬁnished, it will be all wrinkled and ﬂoppy, and look nothing like the photo. Now it’s time for you to make your lace pop. Edgings and insertions, and shawls and large items like tablecloths just need to be damp before blocking.
I ﬁrst got addicted to making doilies because I could pick a pattern and just get started with any thread I had on hand. I never had to worry about gauge again or whether the item was the right size. Cool! (Insert wrong buzzer sound here…)
Have you ever come across a pattern with several sizes of doilies in the same design, and wondered which size you should make? Actually, the designer intended for you to make all of them, and at least six of each!
