Technically, yes. I am doing another swap on K&C and my partner wanted a doily but NOT made from thread. I thought about regular cotton worsted but I figured it would be TOO lumpy and not lay properly. So I was searching through A.C. Moore and I found this light worsted, TLC cotton blend...half cotton, half acrylic. It looked like it would be a nice thickness, would lay nice and be easy to care for. I also found a booket with new doilies in it and since my partner said either oval or rectangular, I figured this pattern was like a cross between the 2. It measures 38"x28" and should look nice on a dining room table or a sideboard and unlike a thread doily, it only needs a slight pressing to block it...I just blocked it for the photo by smoothing it out with my hands. I started it yesterday and finished it a short time ago. Its a LOT easier doing a doily in yarn than thread but I am sure this pattern would look really sharp in thread, too. The pattern booklet is called "A Year of Doilies" from Leisure Arts (what would I DO without them?) and this is their "May" doily. I hope my partner likes it. If I have the time, I will make her another doily in another pattern.
