Rose Scallop doily finished

Finished the Rose Scallop doily! It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be and I learned a new stitch. Have you ever heard of a 'fork stitch"? I hadn't but after several tries, I got the hang of it. The only problem I had was when I got to the 36th row, I discovered that I had crocheted the 34th row incorrectly. So I had to rip out back to where I made the boo-boo. Hard to keep your mind on your crochet and watch 'Pretty Little Liars' at the same time. How do you like it?
I want to thank Linda for sharing this pattern with me.

Do you know that you are a no-reply blogger? When I get the e-mail notification of your comments on my blog, there is no return e-mail address so I cannot send you an e-mail reply. You can fix that by putting your e-mail address on your profile information. The address itself will not show up, just a link on your profile that says e-mail.

It makes it much easier for your bloggy buds (me) to reach you!

Thanks, Keetha. It took me awhile to find where you were talking about, but I got it added. Thanks.

The doily is just beautiful! Such intricate stitching!

I, too, must rip back when I find a mistake several rounds back. But I wouldn't be able to sleep if I let them go!

It turned out beautiful Charlotte. I just did a blog entry adding the link where I originally found the pattern on Picasa. I've had a couple inquiries about it. I love it in all white also!

I am going to have to look up that stitch, now you have me wondering what it is. :)
