There's a round doily, a square doily, some coasters, a small basket, a couple of cup-cozies, jar decorations, a hook case, a scissor-sleeve-thing, some baby shoes, a kleenex box cover that can double as a placemat, a cell-phone pouch, a change purse, sachets, and uh, pot holders!

I think I've forgotten a couple things, but I don't have the book with me at the moment.

Go to this webpage, and click "View More Images" underneath the picture of the book: http://www.knitpicks.com/Kyuuto!+Lacy+Crochet_BD31015.html.  It's got twelve images of different projects in the book.   Smiley

Anybody have any idea what size thread to buy for these? I bought size 10 and size 3 and tried using the recommended hooks. The round doily is really thin and small so far and I tried it with the 10 and its way too thick in my opinion. I've been trying to research how to do lace crochet but, I haven't had too much luck and I really wanna make all the cute stuff in this book. If anybody has any suggestions, please send them over here. I would really appreciate it.

i made the doily with size 10 thread and a 2mm hook, and it did come out a little small - i'd have to check the book again to see what it's supposed to be, but i'd say mine came out to about 6" in diameter. i think doilies are supposed to be thin and dainty though. i would be interested to see what would happen if you used the #3 thread with maybe a D or E hook - that would definitely beef it up.

i'm doing the tissue box cover at the moment, again using size 10 thread and a 2mm hook, and the gauge is looking pretty good.

i will say this - be sure to steam iron your doily; mine looked like hell until i did that  Smiley

i'm eager to see how it turns out - keep us posted!

thank you very much for the advice. I'm attempting the leaf potpourri bag with the size 10 thread and 1.8mm hook and so far, so good  Grin i'll have to post pictures of it when I'm done
