I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s time to shine up the classics.

While round and lacy doilies are well know, an oval doily is something novel by its rarity. Despite being a classic of yore, they are a very time-tested theme known of old. Therefore, why not introduce some change into your doily selection by breathing some new life into a timeless classic. However, don’t be fooled by the  heritage. After all, these patterns are very much attuned to modern yarns and fashion. Moreover, you have tons of room to customize and improve them in any way you see fit.
