Winter, part 4

Part 4 of the pattern Winter went live on Thursday, Nov. 9.  Originally, the designer was going to post photo tutorials on Tuesdays and Fridays, but there was a misprint for one of the release dates, so she put one out on a Thursday instead of Friday.  I got a chance to crochet on Saturday, so I am well caught up before the last bit comes out on Tuesday.  There are only three rounds left; I am getting excited to finish and block these two doilies, to see them in their best presentation.

I still am not sure how I feel about the variegated thread, Ocean.  I don’t think I like looking at it from a distance, but I really like looking at it up close.  I don’t think I will display this one anywhere, but will keep it where I can hold it, and look at it close up, to see the individual stitches and color shifts.  Maybe it will become a meditation device, something to look at and let me mind wander around on.
