Star Gift Book No. 150 - Gift Doily  
Almost done. One crochet pattern left after this, and the rest are yarn crafts, appropriate for
children to do with your help, and for grandparents to ooh and aww over. This pattern made me nuts, and I edited just a bit because it kept changing how it expressed the stitches, sometimes from one row to the next the spacing in the abbreviation would change. Other than that, I didn't edit the original text.
