Not Yer Gramma’s Doilies, or, Mommy – Why Is There Plastic All Over The Furniture?

Years ago, whenever I heard someone mention lace, it always brought to mind either something to do with a wedding dress, Prince’s frilly shirts, or those horrid round yellowing things grandmothers used to keep trapped under vases and lamps – it’d be almost like a scene from “The Fly”, only you’d walk by an end table or mantle and you could almost, just almost, hear a barely discernible tiny doily voice pleading: “Kill Meeeeee”. Doilies ranked right up there in fine home furnishings with the 70s padded fake leather semi-circle rec-room bar and chrome bedroom sets.

Anyhoo, there was some major binge-dyeing this past week, and as a result we whipped up a fine batch o’ MCN Lace for yer oohin&aahin&adoptin – Some new colourways and a few old favourites mixed in to keep the nostalgia-junkies happy. Anyone found using this MCN Lace to make doilies will be forced to knit exclusively with Wal-Mart bargain bin acrylic yarn for the next year…

And if Prince asks, tell him Yes, there are a few purple skeins fer the gettin’…

To purchase any of the products, please send me an email at indigodragonfly.K AT gmail.com (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which yarn(s)/gear you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre/project bag secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval.

Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.

  1. The one time so far I’ve been a bridesmaid, I wore a dress that I think is the exact same color as Angry Bridesmaid. Ironically, I loved the dress – the lines of it looked fabulous on me – but it’s not a color I’ll ever be able to wear again. Sigh.
