My First Doily

Yesterday I was so tired and drowsy I knew if I sat to work on anything I could do from my head I'd be asleep 10 minutes after sitting down. And this doily pattern kept staring at me since I'd printed it out a few days ago.

It's the Winter's First Snow doily (size 10 thread, #7 hook)with picots rather than the dc clusters around the edge. My mother who saw it in an email just a few minutes ago said she liked it better with the picots. I just like picots better (but Mom sure did know how to make me blush!). Only 7" in diameter though, I'm not sure why the difference but that it something to work on in the future. I finished it today and blocked it on my snowflake board. Boy has that thing proven itself useful!
