Doily Blanket: Georgia



The new doily blanket pattern is now available! Please see the pattern page for more information (size, yarn, etc) and photos! Go directly to the Ravelry page to purchase, HERE.

I really love that this lace feels more solid. It’s all lacey, but it has more weight. My kids use it to cover up on the couch. It’s a doily that can take some rough-handling from little ones!

Using worsted weight yarn to make doilies/lace continues to be a real pleasure. The finished item looks so intricate, but it really works up rather quickly (about 5-6 hours total?) and feels great. I have made them for gifts and they’ve always been so well received. If you don’t crochet, I’ll be putting some in the shop next week and will also have a custom listing set up for anyone who would like a blanket in a special color.


Many thanks to Melissa from Hooked on Handmade for helping me out this past week with finding mistakes and typos in the PDF!

A new doily blanket pattern!

See, I’ve been quiet around these parts, but I’ve been keeping busy. Two kiddos in school equals twice as much homework and, even worse, TWICE AS MUCH LAUNDRY. Alas, sometimes I’ve gotta check out and just sit on the couch & crochet all day.

I finished this up a few weeks ago, but then it took me a while to write out the pattern and even longer for me to sit down and type it up. My process for pattern-making usually goes something like this: crochet while writing it out w/my favorite pencil, then type it up, crochet it again, checking pattern for typos, take photos, compose pattern + photos into pretty PDF file. I sort of did the same this time, except I stopped writing while crocheting about halfway through. REGRET set in immediately. I had to crochet it again by feeling out the stitches and wrote down what I was doing, changing things up a bit in the process. I got burnt out by that, so it took me a few days to sit down with it and type it up.

NOW. I had originally planned to release the pattern tomorrow, but I want a few more days with it. I’m going to go over the pattern a few times to check for typos and consistency in the directions and I’ll see if I can crochet another one this weekend. My mom’s birthday is coming up, so it’ll be the perfect gift!

I hope to see you back here sometime next week with more details plus tons more photos!

the Glory details

(see what I did there? :))






I got a custom request for a teal Glory. This is actually the same color I used for the Willow I made for my husband’s grandmother. She’s a crocheter so I knew she would appreciate the work it takes to make a doily. She loved it and I hope the person who receives this teal Glory loves this one just as well.

I have a few Glory blankets available in the shop, right now. If you would like to request a custom color, send me an email ( and I will do my darndest to find the perfect color for you. If you crochet and want to make your own, see the pattern details HERE.
