Doilies are for the birds

Tonight, I decided to try my first doily. I had the pattern, I had the thread, I had the hook. What I lack is the talent and patience.

I stitched, I frogged, I stitched, I cursed. Then I came to the realization that I hate working with thread and teeny-tiny hooks. This is how far I got on it before I gave it up.

See that thread? It's going into my next crochet round-robin box. *nods*

Thanks Sandi! I don't think I'll be doing anymore threat crochet in the near future. My shoulders are *still* tense from this doily!
