Clyde's Ray of Hope Doily

 


I am test tatting this doily for Clyde and he has given me permission to post progress pictures. Hopefully this design will be in a book in the near future!

As you know, Yarnplayer's Rhubarb Crisp/Rhubarb Pie is one of my all time favorite hand dyed threads. This is my second doily in this color, plus several snowflakes for my Rainbow Christmas Tree and a cross motif.

To be different, instead of my normal size 20 thread I am using size 80. The center motif is the Rhubarb Pie variegated. The next two rows are in the lightest pink in the "set." It measures 3" so far.

Stay tuned for further progress and colors!

As all the other doilies that Clyde has designed, I know this will turn out great. I am glad that he allowed you to post progress pictures in your blog.

Cool! I see the rays of hope - very good name. This will be interesting to see it take shape. I like how you are using solid with the variegated.

Very nice so far. I think your colour choice is going to make this doily turn out wonderful.
