A Spiral Hexagon Doily

I was just flicking through a book of crochet patterns to refresh my mind late one night, and this particular pattern had me curious. Two hours later (and forgetting about going to bed), I was crocheting away and thought that I would make a coaster for my coffee cup. But then, I wanted to finish the whole ball of the cotton I was using. So, after a few train trips to and from work (and to stop me from falling asleep on the way home!), a coaster grew to become a doily for my metronome, instead.! I did have to do some 'blocking' to shape the doily after I finished crocheting it. It's now taking a 'stately place' on my piano so that I'm seeing it more often than not. :-)
