Finished Libra doily

Last night I finally finished this doily. It is an interesting design, because it has eleven repeats. On the whole circular designs are based around even numbers, so not only an odd number, but a prime number seems an interesting choice.


As I said previously, the name seems astrological and that would be another reason to choose twelve repeats, still, here it is, as designed. The thread is beautiful and I wish I had a better scanner to show the colours. I had just enough to complete this design, which added to the fun. I always tat faster when I am running out of thread, does anyone else do that?

Beautiful, and I love the color choice! Yes, I do tat faster when I think I'm running out of thread. It's almost as if I'm thinking that if I tat faster, the thread will last longer... silly bit of logic!

The piece is gorgeous! Nice work!

So, I am not alone, with the rush to finish before the thread runs out!
Thanks for the compliments, although I feel it was serendipity that the pattern and the thread went so well together. So the real credits must go to Yarnplayer and Pascal Provost. :)

I tat faster when I'm about to run out! I thought I was the only one who did that and kept that goofy secret to myself.
