I'm not sure what to say about today's adventure in crochet.

This, according to my pattern book, was supposed to be a frost flower - which sounds very delicate and dainty. Ethereal, even.

And that's exactly what it looked like in the picture too. The illusion of fragility absolutely achieved in the complex twists and loops of yarn. Gorgeously lacy. Perfectly formed. And most of all, nice and flat.

My version? Well, mine looks like a bloated doily after a hard night of drinking.

Le sigh.

Somebody call this doily a cab...

But it's still pretty!

P.S. I haven't commented on this new blog yet, and I know *nothing* about crocheting, but I'm absolutely loving seeing what you're making.

lol...did you use the right yarn, hook, etc?

It's still pretty. I'd starch it and use it as a 3D ornament.
