Doilies

I met up with a girlfriend today who told me she started crocheting again…making doilies.  Wow…doilies…remember them?  We had them growing up, but I wondered if “kids” nowadays know what a doily is.

I decided to poll my yoga class.  All the women under 25 knew what a doily was, and I remarked that that surprised me.  They told me to ask a guy…most likely a guy wouldn’t know.  The one guy I asked, he didn’t know, but when I explained what it was, he said that that vaguely sounds familiar, now that I told him. 

And isn’t doily a funky word?  I wondered about this, and also how to spell it correctly, and found out that they are named after an early 18th century dry goods dealer on London’s Strand.  Interesting that his name was Doiley, but now the accepted way to spell the word is without the E.
