I am so pleased with the way it is all working. I used a variation on Nancy Bush's Estaonian technique for sewing straight edgings around a corner, to make sure I have a nice flat lying piece of straight lace there. It looks as if there is a fold or a ruffle but there isn't. I am also pretty impressed with how far down side two the knitting goes.
If I look at this side of the work, it looks pretty fine, if I do say so myself.
However, it will have to wait. This has to be a sewing week. I am home this week, but will be away next week because
Owen Michael decided it was time to arrive. He missed my mom's birthday but he came in close enough that his Grandma (me) will remember the day he was born because of it. His mom sent me this shot from just before he is heading home for the very first time. My sweetums. Destined for a sock Monkey hat. Maybe a sweater too. And certainly a blanket.
His big brother Emmett liked him and then ignored him, but when baby was still there the next morning, he started to get the hang of having a baby brother. His other brothers are really pleased that he has arrived safely and is home. Me too.
