What Round IS This?

     Last post I had finished round 8 of the Stawasz Doily 1. Now I have started on round ... er ... uh ... well, I am not sure. I think 9 comes after 8. The diagram shows VIII for the one I just finished. I see IX and X, but they come after this one. It seems the diagram did not label the last few correctly. Then, too, perhaps since this round is a series of 24 medallions added one at a time, they don't consider it a "round". Well, to me it is 9 and there will be 11 rounds.
     I have completed the first three medallions (24 required). They are about an inch across. The previous round finished at about 7 inches so this will make the doily 9 inches when the round is finished.In King Tut thread, this is still going to be a respectable 11 or 12 inches across. I did not expect it to be that big.


  1. Its lovely so how big would it have been in size 20 thread? It's great to know what thread size will do😃

  2. How confusing and what a lot of ends to ‘get rid of’ too on this round. Onwards and upwards, Tim.

  3. Those medallions look small enough to tat without stressing your shoulder. I call that a win-win!

  4. Hiding the ends of size 80 would be the biggest challenge for me. The doily looks lovely so far!

    1. Yes, Diane, but this not size 80. It is King Tut quilting thread. I am told it is about a size 120. Also, I have been sick the last 2 days (flu) so it will be a little while before I feel like getting back to it. (BTW, I use a very fine sharp needle.)
