crocheting lace (i must be insane)

Yes that's right, I've started learning the very slow yet amazingly addictive process of crocheting lace! Doillies all round for christmas presents this year...
Am using the book 'Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts Lacy Crochet' which is fab, although the patterns take a fair bit of studying for a semi-beginner like me! Highly recommend if it's something you want to try, although beginners may want to learn a teensy-bit more before attempting this stuff. So here is my first try which after many hours is still not complete, but oh it is so pretty! And yes, that is a crochet hook. It's a 2mm one (this is indeed very fiddly stuff!)
