Resurrecting a Project

A few years back (before I became obsessed with socks), I used to crochet a lot of doilies (check out my Doily Set on Flickr). Some I gave away or swapped, some are used around my house, and some are stacked up waiting for their turn to be displayed. I still have a few that I finished but they still need their ends tucked in and blocked.

Lately, I've had the urge to crochet doilies. I don't really need more projects to work on, but I'm in denial about that, so I'm not even going to think about it. When I switched from avid doily crocheter to obsessed sock knitter, I left a doily unfinished. What's kind of sad about this, is the doily is only 4 or 5 rounds from completion. So, I figured this is a great way to satisfy my doily-making urge.

The white and blue thread, as well as, the pattern and hook I used were all stored together. The pink thread was a little harder to put my hands on, but I did eventually find it. I'm hoping to finish the crocheting this weekend. And with any luck, blocking will occur soon after that.
