Still Doing Laundry

Last night I blocked 3 more knit doilies.

These are a lovely pair.

These 2 are not a pair. I didn't realise they were the same design until I had ironed them. The one on the right is made from a thicker ecru coloured thread, the other thinner white thread. This image doesn't show the differences very well but a change in thread thickness and colour has a noticeable effect on the resulting textile.

The extra threads scrolling through the net identify this type of lace as Italian Modano net darning, though I suspect the cloths I have were made in Asia where cheap labour is been employed to reproduce time consuming embroideries from many different countries.
