Frickin' doily

I'm a bit later than normal with today's post, but I have a very good reason. I was trying to finish up the doily. I only had about five rows left this morning, but, of course, those five rows are the longest. So it took me a while.
Needles: Size 3 (3.25 mm)
Yarn: Knitpicks Palette in Black (or maybe coal. Were I a responsible blogger, I'd look it up. )
Comments: It's not as big as I had hoped, but it's at least big enough to cover part of the alter, so it's all good. If you plan on making this yourself, there's a mistake in the pattern on row 11. I'll e-mail the lady who runs the page and see if she wants to change it.
Why black? As far as I know, there isn't any sort of Buddhist symbolism with the color, but 1) Wayward Boyfriend likes black and 2) I was wanting to use yarn from my stash for this. I didn't want to go any higher than fingering weight. All my other colors I have half-assed plans for, so black was chosen. Simple as that.
What's really sad about this is that I still have a fair amount of yarn left over, and am contemplating making more doilies. I hate doilies. There's absolutely no reason for me to want to knit more of them, yet, here I am.

Yep, doily kniitng can be pretty addictive! Have corrected the error in the pattern - thanks again for letting me know.
