    Very nice work! stitches look perfect!
    I dont like working projects with "holes" either, but the finished product is amazing!

    So glad you shared your work.

    @Susan. Thanks for the compliment - but there are mistakes. I just could not have ripped the project apart to save my life. I admire people who have the patience to do that, though.

    @dancingbaehr. Thanks very much! It is my first doily. From now on, though, I'll be using thicker thread or thin yarn with a slightly larger hook.

    The woman who taught me to crochet did so with the tiniest hook I have ever seen + thread to match. LOL. She never worked with yarn, I guess; all she knew was making delicate doilies, so how better to teach someone.

    That little piece of something I first made looked like the Doily From Hell. My second project was a baby's jacket with thin yarn, and it turned out good.

    MeToo,
    I'd love to see a photo of the baby jacket, if you have one.

    Hi, Jo. That was 40 years ago, at my almost-first job. I gave the baby jacket to a pregnant girl in the office where I worked. Nice of you to ask in any case!
