Extravagant Doily

Untitled

In doily withdrawal?  Well, suffer no longer.  This is the Extravagant Doily which I made my sister for her birthday.

The Extravagant Doily pattern is from Leisure Arts-Extra-Special Doilies, and you can check out the Ravelry pattern page for it here.  The doily book has several patterns with names like "Excellent," "Exceptional," and "Exquisite..."  How can you pass up a book with such alliterative fun?!  Answer- you can't.

It was a fun doily in that there were a lot of front post and back post stitches which created great texture.  It might not be a great pattern for a beginner, but the different stitches made for an interesting and out of the ordinary make!

Do you have anything Exciting on your hook?
