Crochet - Shop

I started crocheting doilies in 2021. I don't know why. I taught myself to crochet when I was about twelve because my grandma crocheted and it looked like a fun thing to do. (What can I say? I was a nerd child.) Grandma made doilies and she had loads of them about the house; under the fruit bowl; beneath a vase; just gathering dust on the sideboard etc.

Up until a couple of  years ago I mainly crocheted blankets. Blankets are useful. But a while back, for some inexplicable reason, I got the urge to crochet a doily. So I did. And then I made another. And another. Then I couldn't stop with the doilies and I went from basic ones made from vintage patterns to really complex, highly textured ones. I have a stupid amount of mercerised cotton thread which I'm determined to get through, even though I keep topping my thread mountain up with more.

I love crocheting doilies. It's all about the process for me. I find it relaxing, even when I'm ripping back rounds that have gone wrong. The joy of seeing a doily all finished and blocked really is quite a thing. (Again, nerd.)

However, when a doily is done, I put it in a box and that's it - I've had the fun from it. I don't have a use for doilies here. Even if we owned countless tables and pieces of furniture that a disc of crocheted lace could sit upon, I doubt whether I'd actually deploy a doily.

Thing is, it seems kind of wrong to keep all my doilies trapped in a box doing nothing. I photograph them and post them on Instagram and people seem to like them so I thought I'd list some here. If nobody buys any that's fine, but it makes more sense to try and find them a home where they might actually get used, rather than endlessly doily-hoarding only for me to happen upon them in years to come, when future me will remember that time I went doily bonkers for no apparent reason.

One day I may have other crochet items for sale but it's just doilies for now.

I'm afraid I no longer take cheques or postal orders.

It is up to you as the customer to select which level of postage you'd like. If you don't select an insured service, or you select a service where the value of the goods exceeds the insurance limit, that is down to you and in the event of loss or damage, I am not liable to refund you for goods which were not covered by the level of insurance stated. Example: If your items are worth £35.00 and you opt for 2nd Class postage, only £20.00 compensation can be claimed in the event of loss or damage.
