Had a good sleep last night. Woke up late this morning. Took a peek at the blocking board. Ahhh! My little lace doily was just stunning, even on the messy blocking board with hundreds of pinholes, and was still stretching under pins!
Pattern: Egeblad, a Danish pattern available free at www.yarnover.net
Thread: DMC Cebelia size 30 crochet cotton
Needle: 2.00mm Inox / Addi Turbo double point and circular needles

And also, I made a tote bag, for shopping fabrics (a store in Toronto would offer $5 off for purchasing $25 or more if you bring your own handmade tote bag).
