Lovely Leftovers

My recent weaving project left me with lots of left over yarn.  When I realized how badly I'd calculated and how much was left, my mind quickly started brainstorming about what I could do with it.  The idea of a doily popped up and it seemed like the perfect use for this yarn.

I started crocheting one this morning and I'm loving the results...


I'm using a size "E" crochet hook and the "Summer Splendor" pattern that's free on Ravelry.


I love it when I find a project/pattern that's a perfect match for stash yarn!

How beautiful! Every time I see one of your lovely crochet projects, I just want to sit down and try it. The yarn is just perfect for that pattern.

It is gorgeous and amazing the difference in how the yarn looks in the weaving and how it looks in the doily.
