Summer doily / Centrino estivo

Well, as you know, it's hot. Incredibly hot. And I can't stand it, so I barely crochet anything these days. I've started a shawl so long ago I can't remember when and I'm adding a row a day - barely, as I said. But this doily, my very first one, took only a few hours to make, and it was fun: a present for my MIL's birthday, a few days ahead. She loves bright pink and bright colours in general, so when I found this thread I thought I'd use it to make something for her, and here it is!

Beh, come sapete, fa caldo. Incredibilmente caldo. E io non lo sopporto, quindi lavoro pochissimo a uncinetto in questi giorni. Ho iniziato uno scialle talmente tanto tempo fa che non mi ricordo più di preciso quando, aggiungo un giro al giorno - a stento. Ma per questo centrino, il primo che realizzo, ci sono volute solo poche ore, ed è stato divertente: un regalo per il compleanno di mia suocera, tra qualche giorno. Lei adora il rosa brillante e i colori vivaci in generale, quindi quando ho trovato questo filo ho pensato di usarlo per farle qualcosa, ed ecco qui!
Lo schema l'ho trovato su Pinterest: https://it.pinterest.com/pin/449797081511270905/

  2. Wow, beautiful! ♥ That's right up my alley, too :-). I'm sure she will love it! We're having a very hot summer here, too. I'm glad it makes a little brake today with reasonable temperatures, a little breeze and rainstorm. But the next heat wave is already coming next week. Happy Sunday, dear! Nata xxx
