Finally some finished objects
Well, one WIP. But it sorta looks finished.
This bookmark is from this pattern. I’ve tatted it once before and I learned about the wildness that can result from not making sure your chains are all pulled to about the same tension. I’d post a pic of the first one too, but I’ve been letting the baby chew and twist it, so it’s looking pretty ragged at the moment.
And here, finally, is a baby dress I’ve been knitting. It should have only taken about three days or maybe four, but I needed to redo the crocheted edging. When I attempted to unpick the edging on one side, I succeeded instead in unpicked the kitchener-stitched joining. Argh! So there was more work to fix that up. I sure hope the parents of the intended recipient like it. I am not so happy with the yarn choice now I see it all done — it’s Vanna’s Choice, which has heretofore been my favored acrylic. Maybe it still is, but I just don’t like it in a stockinette-based garment. I had planned to do it with Cotton-Ease but was seduced by the acrylic. Wrong choice, I think.
