My Jennifer Doily....

....is 9 1/2" wide from point to point.

I knitted her in two days using sz 30 cotton thread and US sz 000 needles.  The pattern can be found in "Knitted Heirloom Lace III" by Gloria Penning

Lace, in all manner, is beautiful.  Even if we think we cannot do it, we try....and then we have a masterpiece like the Jennifer Doily.  It's just keeping track of where you are in the pattern.....just knits, yo's, k2tog's, ssk's'/SKP.........that's all.  It's actually easier than knitting a sweater because this doesn't have to fit you.  :o)

Looks lovely, and I totally agree with you about not needing to worry about sizing. I love lace knitting, and this is a delightful design. Thank you too for the link to the designer.

Yes, I'm choking on that "two days" part, too! Stunning work. But also funny, not having to fit!
