Full Moon Finished

A year ago Debby showed me how she learned to crochet, from her grandma, holding the hook from above like a knife, see Cal of Hodge Podge
on YouTube, (her demo starts a quarter of the way into this video.)

This doily, Full Moon, is my first attempt using this method - fast and painless. I like it.

- doily is 13" unblocked
