Multiple Finished Objects

Thanks to the long weekend last week I finished a couple of things.

First the bag. I decided that I wanted to finish the bag so I could take it to Long Island for the Holiday. I made very small buttonholes, that, should I decided to do grommets later I can just put them over the buttonholes. Once the straps are thought the buttonholes, you can’t see them anyway; so many grommets are just not in the future for the Betty Shopper. I took Betty to SnB last week and got quite a few compliments. Here she is:

I also finished the cream top. I wore it under my pink suit the other day and it was perfect. Here is a shot of her blocking:

And a close up of the lace trim:

And finally, isn’t it amazing how this:

Can become this:

Better pic to come soon.

In the meantime, I cast on for the Debbie Bliss Cardigan, Juliet, that Crafty Girl is also making. 12 inches of garter stitch should make a boring upcoming post.
