Spring 2014 Doily Continued

Progress is faster now on rounds 6 and 7 since they are so easy.  Here is the doily after completing round 6.

This has been a very enjoyable project so far.  It's doesn't use any difficult techniques and it's easy to memorize the pattern of each round after just a couple of repeats.  It's all simple rings and chains with a few rings thrown off a chain in a few rounds. But the pattern is very straightforward, so join the giant tat-a-long that has spontaneously  broken out all over tatland.  You can find the pattern on Renulek's blog.  Scroll down to her earlier posts to get the beginning of the pattern.

Here is a detailed shot of my doily. This picture shows the real colors pretty well.

And this picture is for scale.  At this stage it measures about 9 inches across.  I put a 6 inch ruler across the top of the doily but it's clear, so you can't see it very well.
